PEORIA – Jacob M. Williams, the star of the movie “The Stream,” and the son of Bridgette Martin Williams of Rock Falls, will attend a showing of the movie Jan. 29 at Peoria Riverfront Museum, 222 S.W. Washington St.

The screening is a fundraiser for the Washington Tornado Relief Fund. The Rock Falls native and his family lost their home during the Nov. 17 tornado in Washington.

Admission is $25. A celebrity meet and greet will be from 6 to 6:45 p.m., with the movie at 7 p.m.

“The Stream” premiered in October, and centers on a group of grade-school friends in 1981 at the height of “Star Wars” popularity. The family comedy follows the five friends as they go along a stream to a mall after a bat breaks, having adventures along the way.
