Following “Black Panther’s” recent Oscar nomination for best picture and it’s big win at Sunday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, the Marvel film is returning to select AMC theaters for free screenings for a limited time.
Disney CEO Bob Iger in a tweet on Monday, “today we are excited to announce ‘Black Panther’ will return to the big screen to celebrate Black History Month from Feb. 1-7 at participating AMC theaters. Tickets are free!”
Black Panther is the first superhero comic-book film to earn an Oscars best picture nomination. Directed by Ryan Coogler, “Black Panther” was released Feb. 16, 2018. The film went on to gross more than $700 million in the domestic box office and $1.35 billion worldwide.
In addition to the screenings, Disney will be donating $1.5 million to the UNCF, an organization that helps African American students attend and graduate from college.
