CINEMAGOERS may soon have to pay a little bit more to see the films of their choice as Ipswich Film Theatre is getting ready to rise its prices.

The town centre cinema, which shows current box office hits alongside cinema classics and art house movies, has proposed increasing the cost of tickets by as much as 8.3 per cent.

The review of its prices comes as the cost of many other services in the borough, including burial and cremation charges, get set to rise.

Current prices at the film theatre range from £1.20 for children at matinee shows to £5.20 for a back row seat in Cinema 1.

Under the proposed changes, which if agreed by the borough council's executive committee on Tuesday will come into effect from October, new prices for the same tickets will be £2.10 and £5.50.

Each ticket type – Cinema 1 back row, all other seats, concessions, children's matinees and matinees – will be subject to a different per cent rise averaging out at 5pc.
