The first screening will be in the Starlight Room, the theater upstairs at 237 Taylor St., at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Tickets are $50, to benefit nursing education and training through Jefferson Healthcare.
The second showing is a 12:30 p.m. matinee Sunday, June 29, at the Rose Theatre, 235 Taylor St., where tickets are $20.
“This is a powerful and moving film,” Jefferson Healthcare spokeswoman Kate Burke wrote in a news release.
“Nurses are the front line and face to the medical care you or your loved ones have received,” she noted.
“Their work is incredibly important to the health outcomes.”
