Venues across Suffolk are set to transform into cinemas in a celebration of film and local food and drink.
Film Feast Suffolk Festival returns this weekend to showcase the abundance of fantastic food and drink in the county to the backdrop of some of the world's greatest films.
What films are featuring?
From black-and-white blockbusters to indie classics and critical favourites, more than 70 years of film history will light up venues across the county.
A sell-out screening of Back to the Future is set to finish the first night of the weekend with a bang as a Marty and Doc inspired Delorean will be put on display for the packed-out Jimmy's Farm crowd.
Ipswich is set for a sweet treat on Saturday courtesy of the East of England Co-op when Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory airs at Ipswich County Library at 2.30pm.
And hearts will melt on Sunday when Woodbridge Library hosts the classic rom-com When Harry Met Sally at 7.30pm.
