Thank you for being a friend. For many fans, there was no better television friend than Betty White. Unfortunately, the world lost the beloved icon on the last day of 2021. Prior to her passing, Fathom Events had scheduled a special documentary screening of Betty White: A Celebration — in honor of the star’s expected 100th birthday. However, rather than cancel the screenings upon her passing, the entertainment company has decided to go ahead with the special screenings on the icon’s 100th birthday, Monday, January 17.
It seems like the perfect way to honor and celebrate her life and its impact on the world of entertainment and so much more. The show must go on! And given Betty’s work ethic, it’s probably what she would have wanted, too.
The film’s synopsis: “This celebration of America’s sweetheart is an opportunity to remember Betty White’s amazing life and career. It’s a time to come together and enjoy Betty’s classic moments on The Golden Girls, Saturday Night Live, Hot in Cleveland, The Proposal and The Mary Tyler Moore Show, among others.
Drawing from her final interview, this film provides a backstage look at her career and insights into what was most important to her. Plus, hear from the friends who loved her, including Ryan Reynolds, Carol Burnett, Valerie Bettinelli, Jennifer Love Hewitt and dozens of other celebrity friends who offer their tribute to the beloved icon.”
The film runs for 1 hour and 40 minutes.
In Denver, the special documentary screens at the following locations on January 17:
Aurora Seven Hills — 1 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Regal River Point 14 — 1 p.m., 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Regal Denver Pavilions 15 — 1 p.m., 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Tickets are $12.50 each. Price may vary by location. You can purchase tickets at each respective theater’s box office or online. With most Fathom Events screenings, no passes, coupons or discounts are valid.
Thank you for being such a good friend, Betty!
