Actor Richard Gere will receive a major honor during next month's San Francisco International Film Festival.

The San Francisco Film Society posted a picture of Gere on Instagram on Tuesday. The group is giving Gere the Peter J. Owens Award for excellence in acting on April 27.

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.

Previous honorees include Harrison Ford and Jeremy Irons.
