Film trial set to start

A TRIAL run of a cinema in Sudbury, beamed by satellite to The Quay Theatre, starts this weekend.

The theatre has teamed up with Curzon Cinemas in London to do a trial of first-run films. The first showing is Of Gods And Men (15) this Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

If successful, it is hoped to use the high-definition equipment for concerts, theatre from The National in London, documentaries and live opera from New York.

Directed by Xavier Beauvois, the film stars Lambert Wilson, Michael Lonsdale and Olivier Rabourdin and is based on the kidnapping and murder of monks in Algeria by fundamentalists in 1996.

Tickets are available for £5 from the box office on 01787 374745.
