Adam West, the actor who made the caped crusader of “Batman” popular in the 1960s television series, had one last wish before his passing last week at age 88. According to a news release from Sun Valley Resort, the longtime valley resident requested to keep his light shining by helping kids with cancer with a post on his Twitter account that included a link to Camp Rainbow Gold, and the words, “Pls donate if you can.” Camp Rainbow Gold is an Idaho-based organization that supports children with cancer and their families.

As a way to honor West and his continued support of the community he loved, the Sun Valley Opera House will show the film “Starring Adam West,” a documentary of the actor’s life as a Hollywood survivor and family man and the loyal fans who stopped at nothing to see their superhero rewarded with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Half the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to Camp Rainbow Gold.

“The world knew Adam West as television’s classic Batman, Mayor West on ‘Family Guy’ and from many of his other notable roles over his 60-year career,” stated the movie’s producer, James Tooley. “Through good years and bad, he continued to follow his passion, pursue his craft, and fight his way back. He truly was an inspiration.”

The film will be shown Thursday, June 22. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with the show at 7:15 p.m. Tickets, available at the door the day of the show, are $9 for adults and $6.75 for children under 12 and for seniors 60 and over.
