Charade at Showroom Workstation, City Centre 17 December 2023 Tickets from £10.30 — Book now

Over in Sheffield this December, Charade is an early Christmas treat scheduled as part of Showroom’s Spotlight series highlighting some of the team members favourite films.

A Hitchcock-homage that leans into the director’s frothier side, Charade side-steps the darker elements of the Master of Suspense in favour of delightful-chic and feather-light thrills in 1960s Paris. Directed by Stanley Donen (Singin’ in the Rain) the 1963 film features Cary Grant alongside Audrey Hepburn in a well-oiled plot full of playful mystique, double and triple-crossings and some lost WWII gold.

The stars shine as brightly as you’d hope, with Grant’s tack-sharp delivery matched by Hepburn’s impeccably-outfitted dynamo. If you’re even remotely susceptible to the glitz and glamour of old Hollywood, then this bauble of a film should go down nicely.
