We love hearing stories like this one.
Over MLK weekend, Octavia Spencer treated low-income families to a free screening of Hidden Figures in Los Angeles, California.
The Oscar winner, who stars alongside Taraji P. Henson and Janelle Monáe in the film, shared the news on Instagram last Thursday. See her post below.
Tomorrow I’ve bought the 8pm showing of #hiddenfigures the rave Baldwin hills. If you know a family in need that would like to see our movie but can’t afford it have them come. It’s first come first served. My mom would not have been able to afford to take me and my siblings. So, I’m honoring her and all single parents this #mlkweekend Pass the word.
In case you missed it, Hidden Figures topped the box office for the second consecutive weekend.
