'Black Panther' is Coming Back to Theaters FOR FREE

How many times did you see Black Panther the first time around? 

Black Panther has made $1,346,913,161 at the box office since it opened. And that's enough for Disney. This week they announced that they're taking the movie back to theaters. And the price of admission is FREE. 

As you know, we're big fans of Black Panther. I think there's a lot to glean from reading the script, checking out the costumes, and even watching the Behind The Scenes elements. 

So we suggest that you get in line from February 1st - 7th for the Academy Award nominee and SAG winner to celebrate Black History Month. 250 participating AMC Theatres locations will screen the film twice daily. While you don't have to pay for tickets, you do have to register for them. So you can't just pop up to see the movie any time.

Disney has also decided to give a $1.5 million grant to support UNCF (United Negro College Fund) in furthering its mission to ensure access to college for minority students. 

Disney CEO Bob Iger shared these thoughts: 

Black Panther is groundbreaking for many reasons, including the rich diversity of voices behind its success...The story also showcases the power of knowledge to change the world for the better, and the importance of ensuring everyone has access to it. We’re proud to provide thousands of free screenings of Black Panther in hopes it will continue to inspire audiences, and to support UNCF with a $1.5 million grant to make the dream of higher education a reality for more students."

This move continues the cast and crew's mission for community action. Ryan Coogler visited the Ghetto Film School in Los Angeles to help inspire kids to get into filmmaking and give a broader perspective to Hollywood.

And last year, Disney donated $1 million to help develop STEM programs in the U.S. Disney gave the grant to Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA), a nonprofit organization that offers young people support and essential skills to help them reach their full potential.

Shuri would be very proud.
