“I went with my husband and son (10) to see the Ziggy Stardust film at Cineworld Ipswich yesterday. I just wanted to thank you so very much for giving us the opportunity to see it on the big screen. I’ve been a Bowie fan for 35 years and consequently still mourning his death. It meant a great deal to be able to see the film and bring my son along. It was wonderful and we loved it.” — Poppy Fee via email
