TO celebrate one of Bishop Road Primary's most famous pupils, the school's community cinema will be hosting a special showing of one of Cary Grant's famous Hollywood classics.

'Charade' - a romantic comedy-thriller which stars Grant, alongside Audrey Hepburn - will be shown at the Big Screen event on October 10.

Born in Horfield in 1904, Hughenden Road was where Grant (previously named Archibald Alexander Leach) resided before finding fame and fortune in the USA.

Recognised for his dashing good looks and demeanour, Grant was named the second "greatest male star of all time" by the American Film Institute.

The showing will tie in with the 'Cary Grant Comes Home for the Weekend' festival on October 11-12 at Bristol's Hippodrome.

The showing will be at Silverthorne Hall, Bishop Road Primary School. Entry is free. Doors open at 7.30pm, with film starting at 8pm. Over 18s only.
