Spy Kids actors and director Robert Rodriguez will visit with the children of Dell's Medical center on Saturday before the red carpet premier at 4pm.

Actors from the fourth installation of Robert Rodriguez' s "Spy Kids" films will meet with the children of Dell Children’s Medical Center on Saturday.

The new "Spy Kids" stars Rowan Blanchard, Mason Cook, along with old Spy Kids Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara and Rodriguez himself will be greeting the children and signing posters at 1 p.m., before their red carpet Austin premier at The Long Center for Performing Arts at  4 p.m.

Agnes Varnum, the director of marketing at the Austin Film Society, said the proceeds from tomorrow's red carpet event and carnival will benefit The Austin Film Society and Dell Children's Medical Center.

"Not all of the Dell Children's Hospital's kids can make it out to the actual screening so that's why they are doing the event there at the hospital. The stars are going to come and say hi - and I think (the children) have watched a bunch of the Spy Kids movies," Varnum said.

The 'Spy Kids: All The Time In The World 4-D'  premier and carnival are open to the public.
