HARWICH'S Electric Palace cinema has unveiled the selection of films being screened at the historic venue in November.

They include The Great Escaper, a biographical drama film starring Michael Caine and Glenda Jackson.

Released earlier this year, the film is set in 2014 and follows a World War 2 veteran who sneaks out out of his care home to attend the 70th anniversary commemoration of the D-Day landings in Normandy.

It is notable as Caine's last film before his retirement and Jackson's last film before her death.

Oliver Parker directed The Great Escaper and it is rated 12A.

The Great Escaper will be screened at 7.30pm on Friday, November 3 and two screenings at both 2.30pm and 7.30pm from November 4 to November 6.

On November 7, there will be a live screening of Don Quixote from The Royal Ballet at 7.15pm.

The cast features Mayara Magri, Cesar Corales and the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House. Its running time is 210 minutes, including two intervals.

Action comedy film Sumotherhood will also be screened at the Electric Palace in November.

Written, directed and starring Adam Deacon, the film features an all-star supporting cast including Ed Sheeran, Jennifer Saunders and Peter Serafinowicz.

Rated 15, the film follows two friends who go drastic lengths to make money, including robbing a megastar in a nightclub toilet and holding up a local bank.

It is being screened from November 10-12, at 7.30pm on each night.

Paw Patrol: The Mighty Movie, starring McKenna Grace, James Marsden and Kristen Bell, will be screened only once, at 10.30am on November 11.

It is a relaxed screening, meaning the Electric Palace will make adjustments to reduce overstimulation and create a welcoming environment for people with additional needs.
