The Prince Charles Cinema to run an entire season of Robin Williams films for charity


Themed film seasons are the bread and butter of the Prince Charles Cinema, but this one is a little different. The programming team at the PCC have announced they will host a short film season to celebrate the career of the recently passed Hollywood actor Robin Williams, which aims to raise awareness and funds for mental health charity Mind.

Films shown during the season, titled "Robin Williams: What a Concept!", will include Hook, Good Will Hunting and Mrs Doubtfire. The cinema will hold bucket collections at each of the screenings.

The announcement comes after the independent cinema raised more than £2,700 at special screenings of two Robin Williams films - Good Morning Vietnam and Dead Poets Society - last month. The cinema held the screenings following a huge number of requests from their audience who also helped choose the two films that were shown on Saturday 6 September.

"Robin Williams: What a Concept!" schedule:
 
Thurs 6 November 2014 - INSOMNIA
Thurs 13 November 2014 - THE FISHER KING
Weds 19 November 2014 - HOOK
Thurs 27 November 2014 - MRS. DOUBTFIRE
Thurs 4 December 2014 - JUMANJI
Thurs 11 December - GOOD WILL HUNTING
