A touch of Hollywood-style glamour will come to Gorleston’s Palace Cinema tomorrow as it rolls out the red carpet for a high-profile guest.
Preparations are underway for the official opening of the high street picture house which has proved a popular draw in its first few weeks of opening.
Arriving in a Rolls Royce to a bank of flashbulbs will be Margaret, Countess Attlee who opened Great Yarmouth’s Palace Casino in 2008.

Sticking to a traditional format she will cut the ribbon at 5.30pm.
This will be followed by a fireworks display and then all entry into the cinema for the entire evening is two-for-one.
There will also be bubbly and soft drinks, with cake on entry.
Efe Eguko, cinema marketing manager, said there had been a tremendous turnout so far.
He said there were some challenges, as expected, but that overall feedback had been positive, adding: “Everyone seemed really happy about it.”
