A Norwich cinema is to host a charity screening tomorrow night of the film Die Hard in memory of the actor Alan Rickman.

The star died earlier this month after a battle with cancer, and all profits from tonight's film screening at Odeon will be donated to Cancer Research UK. The Norwich cinema is one of a number of Odeon venues across the country taking part in the fundraiser.

Andy Edge, commercial director at Odeon, said: 'Die Hard is one of the all-time great action films, and Alan Rickman's sinister Hans Gruber is a true icon amongst cinema villains. We're pleased to be working with Cancer Research UK on these screenings, as they're an opportunity for our guests to celebrate the work of one of the finest actors in the business, whilst simultaneously supporting a worthy cause.'

Die Hard will be screened at Odeon in Norwich tomorrow night at 8.15pm. To book, visit www.odeon.co.uk
