Sunday, February 5 at 3 p.m., Alamo Drafthouse Kalamazoo will screen the 1980 film Ordinary People.'

All box office proceeds from this memorial screening will go to the American Diabetes Association, in remembrance of Ms. Moore and her decades of work to educate the public about this disease.

An extraordinary motion picture, Ordinary People is an intense examination of a family being torn apart by tension and tragedy. Donald Sutherland and Mary Tyler Moore star as the upper-middle-class couple whose "ordinary" existence is irrevocably shattered by the death of their oldest son in a boating accident. Timothy Hutton is the younger son, struggling against suicide and guilt left by the drowning. Judd Hirsch is the empathetic psychiatrist who provides his lifeline to survival. Mary Tyler Moore gives a riveting portrayal of the inexplicably aloof mother.
