Lawrence Foundation to host early screening of Hunger Games movie for charity

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville fans of "The Hunger Games" film series will be able to see the last movie in the franchise early -- and help local kids while doing so, according to a news release.

On Tuesday, Nov. 17, before the movie opens nationwide, the Lawrence Foundation will host a special screening of "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2" at Cinemark Tinseltown USA to benefit Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. Tickets are now available, and net proceeds from the event will help grant the wishes of Kentucky kids who are battling life-threatening medical conditions.

"Filmgoers are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite series character for a chance to be named 'Best Dressed' and win prizes, including movie posters autographed by Jennifer Lawrence," the news release states. "Those who purchase available ticket packages will have a chance to take home exclusive movie memorabilia from 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2.' Additionally, ticket package purchasers will gain access to an exclusive online, silent auction of items procured by The Lawrence Foundation."

According to the news release, Jennifer Lawrence will not be in attendance -- instead attending the film's premiere in Los Angeles at the same time -- but she will be "well represented by her local family and friends."

The doors will open at 6 p.m., and the movie screening will begin at 7 p.m. Individual tickets are $125 and including a concession gift card and mini movie poster. Larger ticket packages are also available, beginning at $400, which include entry into the online auction featuring exclusive movie memorabilia.
