The next vintage film screening at Lynn’s Majestic Cinema will sweep audiences back to a time of glamour and glitz with romantic comedy, Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

This special event that has been organised in memory of former cinema owner, Malcolm Croot, who died in January after running the cinema for almost 30 years with his business partner, Tony Rowlett.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s is the first vintage screening since What A Wonderful Life sold out at Christmas and the cinema’s manager, Tom Cundy, is looking forward to more in the future.

He said: “We’re hoping to do another one in the summer if we get time with all the other films we have coming up. If not, we’ll be doing another one at Christmas, we’re thinking of getting White Christmas.

“This screening will be more about the film this time, we won’t be having food or a photographer, and we have made the tickets cheaper. I know how popular the film is so I’m sure it will sell out.”

Dress in your finest and take a step back in time to see the glamourous Audrey Hepburn on the big screen on Tuesday, May 13, from 7pm.

Audiences will be given a vintage cinema ticket upon arrival, with the screening starting at 8pm following vintage cinema adverts played on the 35mm projector.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a 1961 American romantic comedy starring Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard, and featuring Patricia Neal, Buddy Ebsen, Martin Balsam, and Mickey Rooney.

A lonely, struggling writer becomes enchanted with his neighbour, an independent young woman who strives to be a high-climbing socialite with a penchance for high-fashion and wild parties. But, soon he uncovers the vulnerability she has at heart.

The showing will end with the original recording of God Save The Queen, by The Philharmonia Orchestra, from the cinema’s original vinyl record, after the credits have rolled.

Tickets are now on sale for £5 and are available from the cinema or on the website at

Also coming up are more opera and ballet live screenings – on Monday they will be showing The Winter’s Tale ballet, followed by an opera, Manon Lescaut, on Tuesday, June 24. Tickets for both are now available from the same sources.
