Whitney Houston’s first film, “The Bodyguard,” will air in select theaters nationwide for one night only later this month.

The 1992 love story starred the singer, who died in February at age 48, as a diva in need of protection and Kevin Costner as her protector. “The Bodyguard” may be best remembered for Houston’s chill-inducing cover of Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You.”

Costner spoke at Houston’s funeral, describing his co-star as an extremely talented woman who always wondered, “Am I good enough?”

“Whitney, if you could hear me now, I would tell you you weren't just good enough. You were great,” he said.

On March 28, participating theaters will show the film in honor of its 20th anniversary. But of course, this will also offer an opportunity for Houston’s fans to see her on the big screen one last time and say goodbye. I imagine “I Will Always Love You” sing-alongs will break out across the country as the credits role.
