Black Panther is such an important film, Octavia Spencer wants to make sure EVERYONE sees it.

Earlier this week, the Academy Award winner announced that she will be buying out a theater in Mississippi to screen the forthcoming feature. “I will be in MS when this movie opens,” she wrote on Instagram.

That’s when she explained that she will “buy out a theatre in an underserved community there to ensure that all our brown children can see themselves as a superhero.”

Spencer, who did the same thing for last year’s critically acclaimed film, hasn’t confirmed the lucky community yet. So stay tuned.

Meanwhile, the anticipation for Ryan Coogler’s Marvel masterpiece has kids around the globe super hype. Check out these students from Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta that just found out they will watch the film as part of their curriculum.

“The students just found out we are all going to see BLACK PANTHER,” Ron Clark, fonder of the nonprofit middle school wrote on Instagram. “We will have a day of cultural classes, African dancers, historical lessons and then we will all go see the film! Turn up!!!!”
