Free Screenings Of ‘A Wrinkle In Time’ Coming To Rockford For Underprivileged Kids
Underprivileged youths in the Rockford area will have a chance to see a major movie the day it comes out thanks to the donations of others.
Color Of Change has partnered with AMC Theatres to form the "Give A Child The Universe" initiative. They are asking for you to buy tickets that AMC and Color Of Change can then turn around and put in the hands of kids in the area to see a matinee showing of A Wrinkle In Time.
Rashad Robinson, executive director of Color of Change tells EW.com "Color of Change believes in the power of images and supports those working to change the rules in Hollywood that inclusive, empathetic and human portrayals of Black people and people of color are prominent on the screen."
Chance the Rapper rented out an entire theater last year for those who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford a ticket to see Oscar-nominated, Get Out.

A Wrinkle In Time opens in Rockford and nationwide on March 9.
