They may not quite have the style of Leonardo Dicaprio’s Jay in The Great Gatsby, but the staff of Bury St Edmunds’ Abbeygate Picture house got into the spirit of Scott Fitzgerald’s story by dressing in 1920s fashions for the opening of the film last Friday.
They also had swing music playing and drinks served in Champagne saucers.
Marketing manager Andrea Holmes said: “It’s the first time they’ve done this but it was a big hit with customers. Some came the next day dressed up. We’ll look at doing it again.”
The film runs until May 30.
