How to see Hidden Figures for free this weekend
If you haven’t seen Hidden Figures yet, now’s your chance.
In celebration of Black History Month, AMC Theatres and 21st Century Fox have announced a partnership that will bring audiences in select cities a free screening of the Oscar-nominated crowd-pleaser this Saturday, Feb. 18.
Screenings will be held in 14 major domestic markets, including New York City, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Los Angeles, among others. Shows will begin at 10 a.m. local time.
Tickets will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. They must be reserved via AMC here. Moviegoers, schools, community groups, and non-profit organizations who live in communities outside the existing list are encouraged to request a free showing of Hidden Figures in their area on Fox’s website.
Hidden Figures stars Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monáe as three black NASA mathematicians who made immeasurable contributions to the U.S. space program amid racial segregation in 1960s Virginia. In January, the film was nominated for three Academy Awards, including best picture and best adapted screenplay. Upon receiving a best supporting actress nomination for her work on the film, Spencer became the first black actress to receive a follow-up nod after previously winning an Oscar. To date, the film has grossed $131.5 million in North America.
