SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Actor Richard Gere will receive a major honor during next month's San Francisco International Film Festival.

That will follow an on-stage honor for Gere at the Castro Theatre the night before.

The Castro will also show "Time Out of Mind," a film in which Gere plays a homeless man.
