Chance the Rapper’s upcoming concert film “Magnificent Coloring World” will get three days of advance screenings in Chicago later this month.

On Monday, the Chicago rapper and AMC Theatres announced screenings May 14-16 at AMC River East 21.

Tickets will go on sale at 6 p.m. May 12 exclusively at the theater box office, 322 E. Illinois.

The movie was filmed in 2017, hot on the heels of Chance’s history-making win at the Grammys, where he was awarded best rap album for “Coloring Book,” the first time the accolade went to a streamed-only album. Nominated in seven categories, Chance picked up three statuettes for his work featured on the album, including best new artist and best rap performance for “No Problem” with 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne.

“Seeing movies together on the big screen is an essential part of summertime and something I deeply missed over the last year, so I am extremely excited and honored to partner with AMC to safely bring fans back to the theater,” Chance The Rapper said via statement, about the movie screenings.

“Magnificent Coloring World” is scheduled for a theatrical release this summer.
