Actress Brenda Blethyn was forced to abandon an official cinema opening yesterday (03MAR05) after she was grounded by snow in Moscow, Russia.

The actress was set to open a digital cinema at a school in Kent, south east England, but her flight was cancelled due to hazardous weather conditions.

But the school forgave the SECRETS AND LIES star, since the blizzards in Britain forced the school to close on the same day.
