Irish fans pay tribute to Robin Williams with standing ovation


Last night, an open-air screening of Dead Poet’s Society took place in Merrion Square, Dublin, in memory of Robin Williams.

Huge amounts of people turned out to pay tribute to the late actor at the event, which was organised by mental health charity Headstrong in aid of Pieta House.

The most memorable part of the event, though, happened right at the end. At the climax of the film during the “O Captain, My Captain” scene as Robin leaves the room and the boys show their support by standing on tables, crowds of people got to their feet for a standing ovation.

Watch the famous scene for the film for yourself below. Robin, you will be missed.
