Entertainment at the Fisher Theatre in Bungay will kick off next week with a screening of The Revenant (15) starring Oscar winning Leonardo DiCaprio.

The film, being screened on Monday, August 15 at 7.30pm, tells the story of a frontiersman on a fur trading expedition in the 1820s who fights for survival after being mauled by a bear and left for dead by members of his own hunting team. Winning three 2016 Oscars for best actor in a leading role, best director and cinematography, it is a beautiful and intense film with magnificent scenery and a heart in mouth story. Tickets for the screening are £5.

On Tuesday, August 16, it’s film time for the children with the popular Lego Movie (U). An ordinary Lego construction worker, thought to be the prophesied ‘special’, is recruited to join a quest to stop an evil tyrant from gluing the Lego universe into eternal stasis. Starring Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell and Elizabeth Banks, the summer holiday film starts at 1pm and tickets cost £3.

Then on Thursday, August 18, Keith Sadler and Friends will be taking to the stage. The singer-songwriter from Suffolk specialises in acoustic music with rich emotional and spiritual themes. He will be joined by his talented band of friends including local singer-songwriter Fern Teather, Sam ‘Bongoboy’ Thurlow on percussion and Jonathan Coy on lead guitar and bass.

Together, they recorded an album Savour Life live at The John Peel Centre last October which is available now.

The show will start at 7.30pm and tickets are £5.

And next Friday, August 19, Buddy Holly and The Crickets will be brought back to life in I Can’t Believe It’s Not Buddy. Spencer J and the Copy-Cat Crickets create the feel of a rock ‘n’ roll concert, straight from the 50s. The band will take you back to the age of the soda shop, the drive through diner and the record hop. The show starts at 7.30pm with tickets at £17.
