Almost a year after its initial release, Marvel Studios’ Black Panther is returning to theaters. In honor of Black History Month, select AMC theaters will screen Black Panther for free.

Black Panther’s theatrical return will be a one-week engagement, running Feb. 1-7. AMC will show the movie at 250 locations in the U.S. Participating theaters will offer two free showings each day during that week.

Disney is also giving a $1.5 million grant to support UNCF (United Negro College Fund), an organization dedicated to helping minority students gain access to college education and fund their higher education.

This comes on the heels of Black Panther’s seven Academy Award nominations, including an historic Best Picture nod, and its win for Best Ensemble at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Starring Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa, Michael B. Jordan as Killmonger, and Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Black Panther not only smashed records at the domestic and international box office, it also pushed for a changed narrative and focus on diversity in superhero movies.
