Cllr Jo Rayner, Cabinet Member for Leisure and Culture at West Suffolk Council which owns and manages the museum, said: “Whether it’s people from across our local communities, or visitors from far, far away, the sci-fi and action exhibitions are always great attractions.

"They are enjoyed by people of all ages and bring a boost for the local economy as well. But while there will be plenty to see, you don’t have to be a huge film buff to appreciate the full force and nostalgia of this iconic exhibition.”
