CITY Screen, York, is to present a 25th anniversary screening of Schindler's List on Sunday morning to mark Holocaust Memorial Day.

Considered to be "one of the most significant films in the history of cinematography", Steven Spielberg's seven-times Oscar winner will be shown at 11.30am.

Dave Taylor, City Screen's marketing manager, says: "The most appropriate day to show Schindler’s List is on Holocaust Memorial Day to remember the story of how one German businessman saved the lives of more than a thousand mostly Polish-Jewish refugees from the Holocaust by employing them in his factories during the Second World War. In showing this film, we are proud to play a part in the city of York’s programme of memorial events.”

Schindler's List (15) was shot in Poland with many Polish actors, such as Andrzej Seweryn, Anna Mucha, Piotr Polk, Jacek Wójcicki, Paweł Deląg, Jerzy Nowak, Agnieszka Krukówna, Olaf Lubaszenko and Maja Ostaszewska, alongside Liam Neeson in the title role of Oskar Schindler, Ben Kingsley as Schindler’s Jewish accountant, Itzhak Stern, and Ralph Fiennes as SS officer Amon Goeth.

On the announcement of this Sunday's 25th anniversary screenings of Schindler's List, Steven Spielberg said the film was "very personal" for him, adding that "this is a history of bravery and hope, which the world needs now more than ever".

In 1994, the film won Spielberg the best director Oscar, as well as best film, best adapted script, original music, cinematography, set design and editing. It also received a BAFTA Award and three Golden Globes.

Tickets for Sunday's screening are on sale on 0871 902 5747, at or in person at the Coney Street Picturehouse.
