Wakanda forever. Or, perhaps for seven days in February – for free. Yes, FREE.
Marvel’s “Black Panther,” the blockbuster nominated for Best Picture and one of the top grossing box office hits in 2018, will return to theaters to celebrate Black History Month this week — and you won’t have to pay a dime to view it on the big screen.
And we’re lucky that one of the 250 locations selected for the event is AMC 13 Champaign on the north side of the city.
Black Panther is returning to the big screen for a one-week engagement, February 1-7, at 250 participating AMC Theatres locations, including AMC 13 Champaign. Showtimes are 4 pm and 7 pm each day.
If you go to the AMC 13 Champaign website, showtimes for Black Panther will not show up there. You must book the tickets through this website: https://www.weticketit.com/blackpanther
When we booked, we were only able to secure two tickets per email address. You can check ticket availability and click “book now” at the link above to reserve tickets. Once all tickets are claimed, a limited waiting list will open up before a show is shown as being “fully booked.”
Tickets will go quickly, so don’t delay.
Here’s the fine print:
“Please arrive early. Seating is first come, first seated. No one will be admitted late. The event may be overbooked and seating is not guaranteed. Marvel Studios, theatre and promoter are not responsible for overbooking. We may refuse, revoke or limit admission in our sole discretion at any time. Tickets may be used for admission only by the person to whom we issued it; it is not transferable. It has no cash value.”
Black Panther is rated PG-13. Wondering if it’s a good fit for your child? We trust our friends at Common Sense Media for information about “kid-friendliness”.
