Great Classical Composers through the lens of Ken Russell, hosted by Sandy Burnett - Friday 10th June at 7.30pm

Join us for a fascinating evening hosted by Sandy Burnett, who will focus on the classical composers who featured in films directed by the pioneering, controversial and entertaining Ken Russell. Sandy Burnett is a musician, broadcaster and lecturer in classical music.  He is one of the UK’s most authoritative broadcasters in the field. His broadcasts, interviews, and lectures are all underpinned by the hands-on experience of being a practising musician.

This unique event offers the opportunity to learn more about the flamboyant films Directed by Ken Russell and the talented classical composers and their music that the films focus on.   Please note this event is an 18.

As an independent cinema and charity, we strive to offer our Friends and supporters a unique experience.  

Throughout the years we have hosted a wide range of entertaining, thought provoking and engaging special events. Highlights include, the fabulous An Evening with Sir Lenny Henry, and Q&As with the much loved Bill Nighy and a film premiere accompanied by a Q&A with Ralph Fiennes.

Aldeburgh Cinema has frequently held Q&As and has hosted some important film premieres. We were thrilled to welcome the highly acclaimed pianist Neil Brand who accompanied the screening of South - Sir Ernest Shackleton’s Glorious Epic of the Antarctic and we have shown a number of local community based-screenings.

We have also worked with other local charities, including St. Elizabeth Hospice and other local organisations, including the East Suffolk Arts Society.
