CINEMA PARADISO IN 4D [12A], Abbeygate Cinema; Bury St Edmunds Thursday 3rd December, 7pm
A celebration of youth, friendship, and the everlasting magic of the movies, Giuseppe Tornatore’s loving homage to the cinema tells the story of Salvatore, a successful film director, returning home for the funeral of his old friend who was the projectionist at the local cinema throughout his childhood. Soon, memories of his first love affair with the beautiful Elena, and all the highs and lows that shaped his life, come flooding back, and Salvatore reconnects with the community he left 30 years earlier.
RAGING BULL [18], Abbeygate Cinema; Friday 4th December, 7:30pm
Scorsese’s extraordinary, compelling examination of the career of prizefighter Jake La Motta – and the destructive urges of the masculine psyche – progressing from his strutting days as unbeaten champion boxer in the 1940s, to his pathetic degeneration into the late ’50s. Centred around a physically and emotionally harrowing performance by De Niro, Raging Bull is a film of near operatic intensity; a sympathetic, tragic portrait of a deeply unappealing man.
DIE HARD [15], Abbeygate Cinema; Friday 18th December, 7pm and 7:30pm NYPD officer John McClane (Bruce Willis,
pictured) tries to save his wife (Bonnie Bedelia) and several others who were taken hostage by German terrorist Hans Gruber (Alan Rickman) during a Christmas party at
the Nakatomi Plaza in Los Angeles. There is some debate whether this is a Christmas film; if you haven’t seen it before, why not watch it and decide for yourself!
