Incredible moving cinema bringing unique movie experience to Sudbury

Updated: May 3

Media Release: 5 October 2023

Sudbury Town Council has partnered with Babergh District Council and Abbeygate Cinema to bring a unique cinema experience to the district.

From Tuesday 31 October to Sunday 5 November, a purpose-built 100-seater mobile cinema, in the form of an HGV, will be set up in Sudbury in the Kingfisher Leisure Centre car park.

The list of films showing includes a healthy selection of new releases like Barbie and A Haunting in Venice, as well as offering Ghostbusters and Haunted Mansion as Halloween specials.

By bringing an affordable cinema experience to Sudbury, we hope to boost the town centre offer during Halloween period and diversify the town's offer in the lead up to Christmas trading.

Cllr Derek Davis, cabinet member for economic growth at Babergh District Council, said: “This is fabulous to see and will bring a really exciting and unique experience to Sudbury for everyone to enjoy.

“Thank you to Sudbury Town Council and Abbeygate Cinema for helping us to make this happen. I look forward to heading down myself and watching The Great Escaper!”

Cllr Jan Osborne, Mayor of Sudbury, said: “Sudbury Town Council is very pleased to be working with Babergh District Council and Abbeygate Cinema to bring this unique cinematic experience on wheels to Sudbury.

“Accessibility has been at the forefront of the project and keeping the ticket prices as low as possible has been key.”

Chris Peters, associate manager of The Moving Cinema, said: “We’re delighted to have the opportunity to bring our mobile cinema to Sudbury and give the good people of the town a quality cinema experience they are currently missing.

“Our mobile cinema is fully heated and air conditioned, has full digital projection and surround sound, and of course is fully accessible. We’re bringing a varied programme of films and there will truly be something for everyone!”
