Fans of Patrick Swayze have one more chance to see the late actor on the big screen. Harkins Theatres is hosting a weeklong tribute to the star, who passed away Sept. 14 from pancreatic cancer. The Patrick Swayze Film Festival runs Sept. 25-Oct. 1 at Harkins Valley Art theater in Tempe.

The lineup includes seven of Swayze’s 24 movies: “Dirty Dancing” (1987), “Ghost” (1990), “Point Break” (1991), “Red Dawn” (1984), “Roadhouse” (1989), “The Outsiders” (1983) and “To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar”(1995).

Tickets to each film are $5. All proceeds will be donated to the local health agency Hospice of the Valley. Founded in 1977, it is the largest not-for-profit hospice in the country and serves more than 13,500 patients a year, including patients suffering from the same terminal cancer that took Swayze’s life.

Harkins Valley Art is at 509 S. Mill Ave. For showtimes, call (480) 446-7272 or visit www.harkinstheatres.com.
