Aldeburgh Cinema is owned and operated by Aldeburgh Cinema Ltd, a company set up in the mid 1960s by members of the local community to save it from closure.
On 30 June 2011 (and varying dates internationally) National Theatre Live will broadcast The Cherry Orchard live to cinemas around the world.
Ranyevskaya returns more or less bankrupt after ten years abroad. Luxuriating in her fading moneyed world and regardless of the increasingly hostile forces outside, she and her brother snub the lucrative scheme of Lopakhin, a peasant turned entrepreneur, to save the family estate. In so doing, they put up their lives to auction and seal the fate of the beloved orchard.
A great event to enjoy with others at Aldeburgh Cinema on the 30th of June.
