He is not the messiah, but a very naughty boy comes to Truro.

The Plaza cinema is screening The Life of Brian for the very first time.

The city council said it has "blasphemous" content and banned it more than 30 years ago.

The ban was never lifted.

Film critic Mark Kermode and cinema bosses asked permission and the new council was more than happy to screen it.

All proceeds from ticket sales will go to Macmillan cancer.

Stuart Jenkins runs the cinema, he said: "It was a bit of an off the cuff remark to Mark Kermode orginally, I said to him 'oh do you know that The Life of Brian has never been shown at the Plaza', he sunk his teeth into it, and we decided we would chat with the council and see if it was worth us pursuing.

"They were on board right from the word go, with Carrick District Council being no more, they were the original body who  banned it, then with the council change and with the change in the film licensing act, they were happy for the BBFC to certificate it as a 15 and that is where we are now."
