Town to show movie film premiere
Lelaina Hall
A rescue hovercraft was launched in Lelaina's memory
Movie star Kevin Costner's latest film is to have its national premiere at a small cinema in Burnham-on-Sea.

All proceeds from 'The Guardian' film will go to the Spirit of Lelaina, the town's rescue hovercraft.

A campaign to raise money for the craft began after five-year-old Lelaina Hall died in 2002 after becoming trapped in mudflats on the beach.

The premiere of the film will take place at The Ritz cinema on 8 October, organisers said.

The Ritz cinema manager Pat Scott said the film's distributor, Buena Vista, was pleased to help out a good cause.

The film, which centres on the heroics of America's coastguard swimming service, is set to be released nationally two weeks later.
