The Alan Partridge Movie is to get its Norwich premiere. In a message posted on the Studio Canal twitter feed this lunchtime, the legendary Norwich DJ said the movie, which was shot in Norfolk last year, will be screened in the city.
He said any suggestion the lunchtime showing had been hastily cobbled together in response to a local campaign would "be met with the full force of the law".
Norwich's most famous fictional son makes a return to the city today. The Forum and nearby City Hall will be providing the backdrop for filming of a new movie, featuring Steve Coogan's creation Alan Partridge.
Earlier this week, Cromer Pier was closed off to the public as film crews took over for the day.
Cromer Pier is closed until tomorrow while a film crew shoots part of an Alan Partridge movie there.
In his first feature film the fictional radio and TV presenter from Norwich is involved in a police car chase through Norfolk.
When filming in Cromer finishes on Tuesday the crew will move onto other Norfolk locations, including Sheringham and Norwich Market Place. The Alan Partridge Movie is expected to be released in August.
