Chance The Rapper really loves movies, that much is evident. The Chicago artist opened his wallet to buy out two theaters in his hometown for a free, all-day screening of the Thurgood Marshall biopic, Marshall, starring Chadwick Boseman in the lead role on Friday (Oct. 13) along with a surprise Q&A session with the cast.
As he’s done in times past, Chano bought out the theaters and posted news of the screenings to his Twitter account. For this announcement, Chance didn’t rely on his press team to do the honors and instead handled his own publicity for this go round.
As noted in the tweet above, Chance sometimes does his town stunts and gave a clue to fans that something special was going to go down. Chadwick Boseman, Sterling K. Brown, Josh Gad, and Reginald Hudlin surprised guests at the Kerasotes Chicago ShowPlace with Chance hosting a Q&A session of the film. How lit is that?
