Fellow Chicagoans, “Hidden Figures” has been winning big at the U.S. box office. In a great gesture to her hometown, one of the stars of the film would like you see “Hidden Figures” on her dime.
Taraji P. Henson has personally bought out a theater at AMC Ford City Mall on Sunday, January 22nd at 2:00PM for the general public. Check out this announcement from her Instagram page:
Ms. Henson, who is from Washington, D.C, but now calls Chicago home, wanted to buyout a theater to share “Hidden Figures” with the members of the public who may not be able to afford movie tickets. Hard tickets will be handed out on a first-come, first-served basis at the theater the day of the screening.
If you’re so inclined to see “Hidden Figures” and share it with others, make your way to AMC Ford City Mall at 7601 South Cicero Avenue in Chicago. Enjoy this fine film!
