SHARE Chance the Rapper to give out free tickets to ‘Marshall’ Friday

It might be Friday the 13th, but it’s your lucky day if you’re a fan of Chance the Rapper and movies.

Chance the Rapper has never forgotten where he’s come from. This year alone, he’s been known to give out free same-day concert tickets and donate a generous sum of money to Chicago Public Schools.

Now, the South Side-based rapper wants to take you to the movies. He bought all the tickets at two theaters for Friday screenings to the movie “Marshall.”

Chance made the announcement in a press release he wrote on Twitter. He highly suggested that fans should come to the 3 p.m. screening. Wonder why? You’ll have to go to find out.

The two theaters are ShowPlace ICON, 1011 S Delano Ct and Studio Movie Grill-Chatham, 210 W 87th St.

“It’s all day, but the later it gets, the more people talk about it, the more seats get filled,” Chance wrote in a tweet. “Come to the one at 3 p.m. I’m good at surprise and stuff.”

“Marshall” is about a young Thurgood Marshall, the first African-American Supreme Court Justice, as he battles through one of his career-defining cases.

This isn’t the first time Chance has given away free tickets to the movies. He did the same thing for the movie “Get Out” in February.
