To ensure that the movie is accessible to all, tickets are free for everyone, and there will be two showings per day at each participating theater.

The Walt Disney Company will also give a $1.5 million grant to support UNCF (United Negro College Fund) in furthering its mission to help minority students access and move to and through college.

Black Panther is groundbreaking for many reasons, including the rich diversity of voices behind its success,” said Robert A. Iger, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, The Walt Disney Company.  “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.”

YouTube & MGM Debut Over 100 Movies Streaming For Free

YouTube recently cut a deal with MGM studios and has released more than 100 titles onto their platform. The movies are ad-supported, meaning you can stream them for free, so long as you don’t mind occasional commercial breaks. Otherwise, you can shell out the $9.99 a month for an ad-free experience.

Among the multiple titles available are the original Terminator, the Rocky series, Legally Blonde, and the classic Pink Panther films. It’s unclear if YouTube, which is owned by Google, will cut similar deals with other studios to expand their selection. Considering that almost two billion people use YouTube a month, it seems that more would want to get in on the action.

You can find the titles in the Free To Watch section of YouTube’s Movies and Shows channel.
