Black Panther is heading back to 250 AMC Theatres for the first week of February.

The movie will be showing in select theatres for free! In addition, the company stated they would give a $1.5 million grant to the United Negro College Fund.

Black Panther is groundbreaking for many reasons, including the rich diversity of voices behind its success,” said Disney CEO Bob Iger via a statement. “The story also showcases the power of knowledge to change the world for the better, and the importance of ensuring everyone has access to it. We’re proud to provide thousands of free screenings of Black Panther in hopes it will continue to inspire audiences, and to support UNCF with a $1.5 million grant to make the dream of higher education a reality for more students.”

Black Panther just scored an Oscar Best Picture nomination, making history as the first comic-book superhero movie to be nominated in the category. The movie was nominated for 7 Oscars altogether.
