DENVER – If you didn’t marvel at Marvel’s “Black Panther” success when it came out nearly a year ago on the big screen, you’ll have a chance to do so starting this Friday at six Colorado theaters – and you won’t have to pay a penny.

In honor of Black History Month, AMC theaters across the nation are showing the Academy Award-nominated movie for a week of free screenings starting on Feb. 1 and ending Feb. 7.

In Colorado, six theaters will bring the 2-hour, 20-minute film to audiences. They are:


AMC Arapahoe Crossing 16
AMC Southlands 16


AMC Flatiron Crossing 14

Highlands Ranch:

AMC Highlands Ranch 24


AMC Orchard 12
AMC Westminster Promenade 24

The Oscar-nominated film, which premiered on February 16 last year in the U.S., has grossed over $1.3 billion worldwide and has a No. 1 ranking for top movies in the past year, according to BoxOfficeMojo.com.

“Black Panther” is nominated in seven categories for the 91st Academy Awards, including Best Picture. The film took home the prize of Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture at the SAG Awards this past Sunday. The 91st Academy Awards, by the way, air February 24 on Denver7 starting at 6 p.m.
