The Regal cinema, in Stowmarket, is reducing the cost of its tickets to 5p to celebrate a year since re-opening its doors following a major refurbishment.

The cinema was previously a single auditorium venue but underwent a multi-million-pound refurbishment which added an extra two auditoriums and a café bar.

The initiative will take place on Saturday May 28, featuring recent family films, Clifford The Big Red Dog (PG), at 10.25am, and Sing 2 (U), at 11am.
