Park Circus is delighted to announce that the classic Hollywood gem THE BISHOP’S WIFE (1947) starring Cary Grant, Loretta Young and David Niven will be twinkling back into cinemas for Christmas to celebrate its 75th Anniversary. The festive Oscar® -winning film from the Golden Age of Hollywood will be screening across the UK from 9th December, including Odeon, Cineworld, Showcase and the BFI Southbank, in addition to Irish cinemas and selected international territories such as France, The Netherlands, Australia and the US.
There will also be a very special preview screening at this year’s Cary Comes Home For The Weekend Film Festival in his hometown of Bristol with a video message from the last surviving member of the cast, child actor Karolyn Grimes (It’s A Wonderful Life).
Heavenly bells are ringing, jubilant choirs are singing and Christmas joy is blanketing the world like freshly fallen snow in THE BISHOP’S WIFE, directed by Henry Koster (Mr. Hobbs Takes A Vacation, Harvey, The Robe). But the Yuletide spirit has yet to warm Bishop Henry Brougham’s Victorian home. Struggling to raise funds for a new cathedral, the preoccupied young clergyman has neglected his loving wife Julia, and now only divine intervention can save their marriage! But the powerful and handsome angel sent from above has a mind of his own and teaching mortal Henry an immortal lesson in romance isn’t all he’s got planned! Starring Oscar® winners Cary Grant, Loretta Young and David Niven, and featuring a “stellar supporting cast” (The Hollywood Reporter) that includes James Gleason and Monty Woolley, this delightful romantic comedy is wondrous, witty and truly divine!
THE BISHOP’S WIFE is in cinemas nationwide from 9th December 2022.
