Ipswich Film Theatre is a lovely little theatre run by volunteers showing select movies at great prices. It's a little bit old school but I think that's the charm, the ticket booth is tiny and only has a small selection of sweets and drinks but...More

Great cinema offering the chance to see films spurned by the big chains. Little kiosk serving snacks and great tea and coffee. Run by volunteers, well worth supporting.

Brilliant place. No overpriced hot dogs or popcorn. No fat people munching anything in fact. Decent audience, never too busy and you can take a beer to your seat. What's not to like?
