He would have been 117 in 2017 and we will celebrate his achievement by showing a selection of his films. The line-up includes one of the most beloved of his works starring Grace Kelly, an early classic spy movie, and a biographical movie about him starring Anthony Hopkins.

Sessions begin at 6pm on the Ground Floor of the Central Library. These screenings are free to attend. To avoid disappointment reserve your seat by telephoning 801-4068 during library opening hours.
