Whether you missed out on Get Out’s original theater run or you just want a chance to see it on the big screen one more time, now is your chance to do so—for free.

In honor of the movie’s one-year anniversary, AMC theaters will be showing the most talked about movie of 2017 on the big screen once again for free for one day only—President’s Day.


Director Jordan Peele himself made the announcement via Twitter on Tuesday evening.

The free showings will take place Monday, Feb. 19, at 7 p.m. in 55 AMC theaters across the country.

Peele’s masterpiece was originally released in theaters on Feb. 24, 2017. The film has been nominated for four Academy Awards: best picture, best director, best original screenplay and best actor.


Peele used the horror film genre to explore issues of race. The movie gained critical acclaim and was his directorial debut. This free bonus showing of the movie means that black people have two reasons to be in theaters over this holiday weekend.
