All profits from the screening in Picturehouse will be donated to Alzheimer's Research UK in memory of former Cinema City manager and programmer, Kingsley Canham.

Mr Canham, who died in July 2018, was originally from South Africa and moved to London at the age of 18. He became a dedicated member of the BFI National Film Theatre.

Deborah Allison, senior programmer for Picturehouse Cinemas, worked with Mr Canham for many years and said: "Kingsley's contributions to Cinema City were immense. We're delighted to be partnering with his family to celebrate his life and legacy with a truly fantastic film."

Kingsley son, Chris Canham said: "There was much deliberation over choice of film. However, STOP MAKING SENSE (1984) is a film that the family remember him screening on its initial run."
