The premiere of the film, which stars Pierce Brosnan as 007 and Halle Berry as the latest Bond girl, will have a gala screening at Ipswich UGC on November 19 where a number of events are being held to celebrate the 40th anniversary film.
It is being organised to raise funds for the East Anglian Air Ambulance and will be attended by the Bickers Action stunt team, from Coddenham, which has created stunts for the Bond films for 20 years.

"Bickers Action will be sending along the new Bond ice car which is seen in the film being pursued across a frozen lake and we have managed to acquire a number of cars from previous Bond movies which will be parked in front of the cinema to welcome guests to the premiere."
The celebrity guests – whose identities are being kept secret – will be treated to an honour guard from Wattisham inspected by a Prince Charles look-alike.
The first four tickets for the premiere were auctioned for £300 to Stephen Page of Portland Direct Marketing. He bought the tickets as the East Anglian Air Ambulance had helped save the life of his company's finance director.
The premiere will be held four days before the film opens to the public. Attendance will be by invitation only.
