The newly restored 4K versions of The Spy Who Loved Me (1977) and For Your Eyes Only (1981) will be screened with 50 percent of all proceeds benefitting UNICEF. As a Goodwill Ambassador, Sir Roger had been a dedicated and passionate supporter of UNICEF since 1991.

There is no better way to remember Roger’s legacy than bringing back his iconic performances as James Bond to cinemas across the world while aiding UNICEF, the charity he steadfastly supported.”

Nick Varley, CEO of distributor Park Circus said “Park Circus is extremely privileged to be MGM’s library distributor and we are delighted to have the chance to celebrate the life and work of Sir Roger Moore through these screenings, and most particularly as it benefits UNICEF, an organization very close to Sir Roger.”
