Harkins Theaters says it will show two free screenings of HBO's documentary on Sen. John McCain who died last week of brain cancer.

"John McCain: From Whom The Bell Tolls", named after the book by Ernest Hemmingway of which McCain was reportedly fond of, "paints an important portrait of an American maverick who has never lost courage and has kept his eye on America’s most important goals," according to HBO.

The documentary was released on Memorial Day, May 28, 2018. Filming reportedly began shortly after McCain was diagnosed with Glioblastoma -- an aggressive form of brain cancer -- in 2017.

It features interviews with McCain, his family and friends, former President Barack Obama, former Vice President Joe Biden, former Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, among other leaders, as well as archived news clips and home videos.

The two screenings will take place on Sunday, Sept. 2 at Harkins' Camelview theater at Scottsdale Fashion Square and Harkins Sedona 6 theater in Sedona, where he lived.

Both screenings will start at 4 p.m.

There is no cost to see the film. Tickets will be available at the theater box offices on a first-come, first-served basis. They cannot be reserved online.

Harkins Camelview will have 245 seats available and Harkins Sedona 6 will have 242 seats available.
