GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Two weeks after the death of Robin Williams, the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts will host a memorial screening of his 1998 film, “What Dreams May Come.”

The showtime for the film will be at 8 p.m. on August 26. Tickets for members will cost $4 and $8 for non-members. The movie is rated PG-13 and runs just under two hours.

According to the UICA, proceeds from the screening will go toward Arbor Circle, a local mental health organization “so that we can help bring awareness and resources to others.”

Williams died on August 11 from an apparent suicide. He was suffering from depression and anxiety as well as the early stages of Parkinson’s disease. His death has since opened up conversations about depression, and calls to suicide helplines have increased.
