Baltimore rapper Damond Blue, his foundation Beats Not Bullets and Dream Bigger Media Group are buying out three theaters at the Towson Cinemark Theatre in Maryland to allow children from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metropolitan Baltimore the opportunity to view Marvel’s new movie Black Panther for free on February 20th. The theater buyout encompasses 182 seats and will include popcorn and soda for each child. Blue is excited to provide the opportunity to see this groundbreaking movie to children who may not otherwise have a chance to see it.
“This movie is important because it gives kids from the African-American community a chance to see a superhero movie with a main hero that looks like them,” says Damond Blue. “He is a King and not a sidekick. Children from all walks of life can benefit from seeing a positive character of any color.”
Blue will also be on hand to speak to the youth about the importance of pride and finding their passion as a way to stay out of trouble. The Boys &Girls Club of Metropolitan Baltimore share in Damond’s joy to bring their kids to the movie.
"BGCMB is so very excited about this awesome opportunity for our kids,” said Kenneth R. Darden, President and CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Baltimore. “The opportunity for our kids to attend this 'Black Panther' movie event is such a wonderful blessing, and especially so since it is happening during "Black History Month. We cannot thank Damond, the Beats Not Bullets Foundation and Dream Bigger Media Group enough for making this special movie event possible for our kids!"
