“It’s an easy date 716! July 16th the film is called Roadrunner: A film about Anthony Bourdain. It’s directed by Morgan Neville,” said Ray Barker, program director North Park Theatre. “It’s a look at his life, both the wonderful aspects of his life, the travel, the cooking, his inspiration to many people, but also the sadness of his suicide.”

Saturday’s event will also feature an auction to benefit Crisis Services and the Suicide Prevention Coalition.

“The suicide prevention is so important to us right now,” said Gotta. “We all need to have awareness.”
