As a tribute to the late and great Robin Williams and also with the view to further raise awareness of suicide in our society, Omniplex cinemas in conduction with RTE 2FM will host charity suicide awareness screenings of Good Will Hunting.
These screening are in aid of Pieta House, Suicide and Self Harm Crisis Centre (Rep. of Ireland) and PIPS Charity (Northern Ireland) (preventing suicides through education). Omniplex cinemas will be donating all proceeds to both of these well worthy charities. Screening will take place on Tuesday August 26th at 6.30pm at Limerick’s Omniplex cinema.
Limerick’s Omniplex cinema will be just one of the chain’s 22 theatres nationwide that will show the award winning and moving story, Good Will Hunting.
The 63-year-old actor who died at his home following struggles with depression recently, gave many sterling performances on the silver screen, but his Oscar winning role alongside Matt Damon was one of his finest hours and the nationwide showing of the movie makes for a fitting tribute and awareness campaign.
Pieta House, the centre for the prevention of self-harm or suicide, opened its doors in Lucan in January 2006. Since then, six centres of excellence have followed suit in Ballyfermot, Mungret, Roscrea, Tuam, Bishopstown and most recently Castleisland while we also have an outreach centre in Finglas.
Pieta house is responsible for excellent work with those considering self harm and more and this special screening will provide funds to supports its network. As 90% of the funding for Pieta House comes directly from fundraising events, they rely heavily on the support and encouragement of their volunteers and the friends of Pieta.
