A new cinema took its customers out of this world with a special party to celebrate the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
The Light Cinema in Thetford hosted an event to mark the launch of the latest Star Wars film, with Stormtroopers patrolling the café, screens and outdoor terrace.
The cinema in Thetford's new Riverside development opened its doors on December 2 and has already hosted blockbusters including Disney's Moana and Tom Hanks thriller Sully.
The special event on Thursday night, with costumed characters provided by the new East Anglian Star Wars Club, was organised by the cinema's floor manager Oliver Thompson, a filmmaker and Star Wars fan who makes his own fan films based around the franchise.
His third fan film has a Norfolk backdrop, with scenes filmed in Thetford and New Buckenham.
