A tragic announcement this weekend left countless people in mourning. LA Laker's star Kobe Bryant, his thirteen-year-old daughter Giana, and 7 others lost their lives in a California helicopter crash. In remembrance of Kobe, a Nevada movie theatre is hosting a free event where you can pay tribute to the victims by watching the upcoming Lakers vs. Blazers game.

Eclipse Theatres partnered with Vegas Laker's Fans to allow fans to enjoy the Laker's on the big screen.

The free event will take place on Friday, January 31 at the theatre's downtown location. You can arrive at 6:30 p.m. to honor those involved in the tragic helicopter crash.

You'll be able to meet and share memories with other Laker's fans while joining in on 24 seconds of silence and MVP chants.

It's the perfect time for the community to come together.  

After the tribute, you'll be able to watch the upcoming game. It starts at 7:30 p.m.

Beer buckets, wings, and other food specials will be available for an additional cost.  

Other cities around the US are also paying their respects in the most heartfelt ways. Miami Heat players honored Bryant by wearing his signature shoes with "R.I.P. Kobe" on the side.  

An Atlanta based artist is paying his respects by painting a mural in the Historic Fourth Ward Skate Park. It's reportedly supposed to be completed by sometime today. 

Below are the names of those who lost their lives in the crash.

  • Kobe and Giana Bryant 
  • Ara Zobayan
