Everest and BayLee, Maureen O’Hara’s great-grandchildren, visit her after school. They play games such as Connect Four and sometimes draw together.


Film and food:

Maureen O'Hara, now a Boise resident, is planning a big day Aug. 17.

All for a good cause:

Proceeds will benefit the Justice Alliance for Vulnerable Adults, an initiative of the Center for the Study of Aging at Boise State University. JAVA fights elder abuse, an issue that O'Hara says she is concerned about.

What movies are playing?

"The Parent Trap," "The Quiet Man," "The Black Swan," "How Green Was My Valley" and "The Hunchback of Notre Dame." An additional film may be scheduled.

Seeing Maureen O'Hara:

O'Hara will make a public appearance to introduce the showing of "The Quiet Man," starring her favorite co-star, John Wayne. That film will show at 1:15 p.m. She also will be at the birthday dinner.


Attending all the movies and the dinner is $150. For $300, get access to a meet-and-greet with O'Hara before "The Quiet Man," have preferred seating at her birthday dinner, see the films and get an autographed copy of her autobiography "Tis Herself." Entertainment will include Irish music, dancing and bagpipes.

Just the movies:

The movies are $6 each, except for "The Quiet Man," which will be $15, because O'Hara is introducing the film. You can see all the films for $35.
