Remembering Robin Williams
Gates at 7.30pm. Film at 9.20pm. This is an ALCOHOL-FREE event - we will not permit any alcohol into the park.
Robin Williams left us a year ago sadly, but not without a legacy that is rich with talent, cinematic joy and humour. Speaking of the latter, there is no film more illustrative of that innate ability in Williams to entertain, than Mrs. Doubtfire. A film for all the family both old and young. Lets remember Williams fondly with a belly laugh or two out amongst the stars.
IMPORTANT NOTES: This is a strictly alcohol-free event. As Merrion Square is a public park, it is forbidden to consume alcohol in the square. Our license to hold cinema events in Merrion Square will be removed if you, our audience, do not respect this rule! There will be random bag searches at the gate.
Please please please work with us on this. Thank you.
More about Mrs. Doubtfire if you haven't seen it (and live under a rock!) :
Daniel Hillard is an eccentric actor who specializes in dubbing voices for cartoon characters. Daniel is a kind man and a loving father to his three kids Lydia, Chris, and Natalie, but Daniel's wife Miranda sees him as a poor disciplinarian, and a bad role model. After Daniel throws an elaborate and disastrous birthday party for Chris, Miranda reaches the end of her limited patience, and files for a divorce. Daniel is heartbroken when Miranda is given custody of the kids and he's only allowed to visit them once a week. Determined to stay in contact with his kids, Daniel discovers that Miranda is looking for a housekeeper, and with help from his brother Frank, a makeup artist, Daniel gets the job, disguised as Mrs. Iphegenia Doubtfire, a Scottish nanny. Daniel pulls off the ruse so well that neither Miranda nor his children recognize him, and in the process, he learns some parenting tips. Daniel also has to deal with Miranda's new boyfriend, a jerk named Stu Dunmeyer.
