Octavia Spencer is the latest celeb to buy out a theater for the Black Panther premiere, ensuring kids in undeserved communities “can see themselves as a superhero.”
The Oscar-winner shared the good news Wednesday on Instagram, saying, “I will be in MS when this movie opens. I think I will buy out a theater in an underserved community there to ensure that all our brown children can see themselves as a superhero.”
She went on, “I will let you know where and when Mississippi. Stay tuned. #KingsAndQueensWillRise #blackpanthermovie.”
Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres will be covering the cost of a screening of the film in Harlem for the local Boys & Girls Club, according to VIBE.
Spencer pulled the same generous move during the premiere of Academy Award nominated film Hidden Figures, treating a low-income community in Los Angeles to a free screening, according to Huffington Post.
