LONDON — U.K. movie theater chain Picturehouse and Universal Pictures have linked up to stage a special charity screening in aid of the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

Screenings of Richard Curtis’ sci-fi romantic comedy “About Time,” starring Bill Nighy, Domhnall Gleeson and Rachel McAdams, will be held at 19 Picturehouse theaters in the U.K. on Nov. 23.

All proceeds from the screenings will go to Plan UK, a child-centered community development charity, which is working to provide shelter, water and emergency supplies to the nine million people caught up in the aftermath of the devastating storm.
