We’re approaching the one year anniversary of Jordan Peele’s groundbreaking hit Get Out. It’s the movie that made tea cups unnerving, and “the sunken place” an instantly iconic metaphor for the marginalization of Black Americans. And now it’s four-time Oscar-nominated and coming back to theaters for a very special engagement.
To thank the film’s fans for their support, Peele and Universal Pictures are offering free passes to see Get Out at 7 PM on Presidents’ Day at 55 AMC theatres nationwide. To get one, all you have to do is show up to a participating location the day of, and ask for one while supplies last. Tickets are first-come/first-served, and one per person. To see if there’s a participating theater near you, check here.
Peele’s film not only dominated at the box office, won rave reviews, and became a touchstone in our discussion of race politics, it also inspired artists across the nation. To celebrate them and their work, Universal has created the video below.
