Not to mention that this isn't her first time buying out a movie theater for a special showing.
Octavia Spencer did the same thing when Hidden Figures was released, buying out a theater in California for a screening dedicated to families who wouldn’t have been able to afford tickets normally. “My mom would not have been able to afford to take me and my siblings. So, I’m honoring her and all single parents this #mlkweekend,” she wrote.
Black Panther is Marvel's upcoming superhero movie starring Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, and Danai Gurira.
And it’s so highly anticipated that, according to Fandango, it has outsold every other superhero movie in ticket pre-sales at this time.
The hype, and Octavia Spencer’s grand gesture, is fitting for a film with such a powerful and diverse cast.
Octavia’s Instagram post about the MS showing of Black Panther featured the #KingsAndQueensWillRise hashtag. Long live the Queen.
So get ready for Black Panther and, if you live in Mississippi, keep an eye on Octavia Spencer's social media.
Mississippi residents should be sure to keep an eye on the actress’s social media, as Spencer has promised more details soon. “I will let you know where and when Mississippi,” she concluded. “Stay tuned.”
