Celebrate Black History Month with free screenings of Black Panther, Feb. 1-7.

When Black Panther hit theaters almost a year ago, it made movie history. With a star-studded cast of majority black actors and crew, the film brought the beauty and power of black women to center stage, celebrated black culture, and tackled thought-provoking cultural issues. Therefore, it’s no wonder that Disney and AMC Theatres chose Black Panther to ring in this year's Black History Month.

Disney announced that they donated $1.5 million to the United Negro College Fund in advance of Black History Month. However, their celebrations are not over yet. Starting Friday, February 1, Black Panther will return to 250 AMC theaters across the nation for a special week-long engagement. There will be two screenings of the film every day until February 7, and tickets are completely free for anyone who wants to attend. Come ring in Black History Month with one of the most revolutionary films of recent history!
