Harkins presents first women's equality film series

Harkins celebrates trailblazing women in the first women's equality film series from Sept. 28 to Oct. 4. Guests are invited to enjoy 15 films featuring the stories of women who have changed the course of history, been pioneers in their industries and fought for what they believed in.

Harkins women's equality film series packages will include a pass to all 15 films, a Harkins 2018 loyalty cup with free fill and medium popcorn. Film series packages are on sale for $30 and can be purchased online or at participating theater box offices. The first 10 guests at each participating theater to purchase a film series package will receive an exclusive series tote bag and hardcover copy of the inspiring best-seller “Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls.” Tickets to individual films can be purchased for $5 each.

“We are honored to celebrate women who have blazed the way through history and continue to fight for women's equality,” Harkins Theatres COO Racheal Wilson said in a news release. “Our first annual Women's Equality Film Series will recognize some of these brave women and we look forward paying tribute to their incredible stories as they inspire generations of women for years to come.”

To help further the mission of women's equality, Harkins will donate a portion of proceeds from the film series to the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media. Founded by Academy-Award winning actor and advocate Geena Davis, the institute is the first and only research-based organization collaborating within the media and entertainment industry to expose gender imbalance, identify unconscious bias and creatively remodel content to achieve gender equity. Geena Davis' 1992 hit, “A League of Their Own,” is part of the series lineup.

• Adrift (2018)

• A League of Their Own (1992)

• Battle of the Sexes (2017)

• Embrace (2016)

• Erin Brockovich (2000)

• Frida (2002)
