Chance the Rapper Buys out Chicago Movie Theater So Fans Can See ‘Marshall’ for Free: ‘It’s Lit’

“Go see ‘Marshall’ today for free,” he says of the movie that stars Chadwick Boseman, Josh Gad and Sterling K. Brown

Chance the Rapper bought “all the tickets all day to see ‘Marshall'” at a movie theater in Chicago, because he thinks the film is “lit.”

“Go see ‘Marshall’ today for free,” he said in a press release on Twitter. “It’s lit. I don’t usually write my own press releases,” Chance added.

“The address to the one on Roosevelt is 1011 S Delano Ct, Chicago, IL 60605 and you know where the on on 87th is at,” he wrote in another tweet. “It’s all day but the later it gets the more ppl talk about it the more seats get filled but yea Come to the one at 3 I’m good at surprises and stuff.”

The film covers Thurgood Marshall’s early years as a young lawyer tasked with defending a black chauffeur in a highly publicized sexual assault case. He worked on behalf of a nearly bankrupt NAACP as the nation braced for World War II. Marshall, paired with a young Jewish lawyer, Samuel Friedman in a segregationist court, the two are forced to fight prejudice as they work their case — which helped set the stage the future Civil Rights Movement.

Chadwick Boseman, Josh Gad, Kate Hudson, Sterling K. Brown, Dan Stevens and James Cromwell star. Currently, the film holds a score of 86 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

Prolific television director Reginald Hudlin, who was nominated for an Oscar for producing “Django Unchained,” is directing and producing the film.
