Harkins Theatres celebrates the late Robin Williams with a week-long presentation of his best work at Harkins Valley Art, beginning this Friday, August 15, 2014.
Fans can come together and enjoy their favorite Robin Williams movies on the big screen throughout the week. The line-up will feature some of Williams’ finest films and includes: The World According to Garp, Good Will Hunting, Dead Poets Society, The Birdcage and Good Morning, Vietnam.
Dan Harkins will introduce Good Morning, Vietnam this Friday at 7:00pm. "I was very fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet Robin Williams. We at Harkins Theatres are deeply saddened by the loss of a genuine person and comedic genius," said Dan Harkins, Owner and CEO of Harkins Theatres.
Harkins Theatres will honor Williams by donating all proceeds from the week-long festival to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and cures childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing and food —because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
Tickets for each showing are $5 and are available at the box office or www.harkinstheatres.com. Harkins Valley Art is located at 509 S. Mill Ave., in Tempe.
