Chance The Rapper has bought all the tickets to see the new film Get Out for a day at a movie theater on the Southside of Chicago.
Earlier today, Chance tweeted that he purchased all the tickets to see Get Out at the Chatham 14 Theater on 87th Street.
Chance is using his influence while also financially supporting the community he grew up in and educating them in the process. This year he won three Grammys for ‘Best New Artist,’ ‘Best Rap Album’ and ‘Best Rap Performance.’ But none of that has changed his stance on giving back to his community.
The film Get Out, Jordan Peele’s directorial debut was given a rare 100% rating from Rotten Tomatoes. It tells the story of a couple who have reached the meet-the-parents stage of dating. A weekend excursion between the interracial couple leads to a series of unfortunate discoveries as the family tries to adapt to their daughters dating preferences.
If you live on the Southside of Chicago, tickets are free all day courtesy of Chance at the Chatham Theater. All you have to do is show up.
Gotta love this guy.
