Easter movie magic

MORE than 200 lucky Ipswich folk enjoyed a special advance screening of The Pirates: Band of Misfits yesterday.

The movie was shown as part of the QT's Adopt-a-Family appeal, with guests asked to donate Easter eggs for a local Ipswich women's shelter and the Ipswich Hospital's mental health unit.

Adopt-a-Family co-ordinator Bernadette Mohr said it had been a fabulous event with a great roll-up.

"People were very generous... and it wouldn't have happened without the assistance of Reading at Redbank. Their generosity by providing the theatre for the morning was most appreciated," she said.
