Next Monday, cinema goers can see Julia Roberts’ new film Wonder on a donation-only basis.

Donations made at the screening will go towards the cancer care charity LARCC, for World Kindness Day.

The charity screening will take place at 6.15pm at IMC Athlone, Ballina, Carlow, Dun Laoghaire, Dundalk, Galway, Santry, Tallaght, and Tullamore, as well as the Savoy in Dublin.

LARCC was set up by Ita Bourke in 2002 who along with Frank Russell and Karen Daly realised that those suffering the effects of cancer needed a dedicated place for cancer therapy and support. Unfortunately Ita lost her own battle with cancer the week before LARCC opened its first house but her vision lives on for what she wanted LARCC to be for cancer sufferers across the country.

Based on the New York Times bestseller, WONDER tells the incredibly inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman, a boy with facial differences who enters fifth grade, attending a mainstream elementary school for the first time. August is played by Jacob Tremblay with Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson starring  as his parents.
