Variety reported that Disney is bringing the popular Marvel superhero movie back to theaters in honor of Black History Month. In addition, Disney said it will donate $1.5 million to the United Negro College Fund (UNCF), a nonprofit that helps young people of color get access to money for college.
The promotion, which runs from Feb. 1 to Feb. 7, is valid in three AMC theaters in San Diego including AMC Fashion Valley 18, AMC Palm Promenade 14 and AMC Mission Valley 20. Other locations elsewhere are listed online.
“Black Panther” debuted in the U.S. on Jan. 29, 2018, and earned more than $700 million in box office ticket sales nationwide, according to Box Office Mojo.
Last week it became the first superhero movie to ever be nominated for best picture at the Academy Awards. It was also nominated for Oscars under the categories of best costume design, original score, original song, production design, sound editing, and sound mixing. Sunday, the cast took home the top honor at the 25th annual Screen Actors Guild awards.
Already news of the free “Black Panther” screenings is attracting buzz on social media.
