Rotten Tomatoes condemns anti-Black Panther plan

DENVER – If you didn’t marvel at Marvel’s “Black Panther” success when it came out nearly a year ago on the big screen, you’ll have a chance to do so starting this Friday at six Colorado theaters – and you won’t have to pay a penny.

In honor of Black History Month, AMC theaters across the nation are showing the Academy Award-nominated movie for a week of free screenings starting on Feb. 1 and ending Feb. 7.

In Colorado, six theaters will bring the 2-hour, 20-minute film to audiences. They are:


AMC Arapahoe Crossing 16
AMC Southlands 16


AMC Flatiron Crossing 14

Highlands Ranch:

AMC Highlands Ranch 24


AMC Orchard 12
AMC Westminster Promenade 24

The Oscar-nominated film, which premiered on February 16 last year in the U.S., has grossed over $1.3 billion worldwide and has a No. 1 ranking for top movies in the past year, according to BoxOfficeMojo.com .

“Black Panther” is nominated in seven categories for the 91st Academy Awards, including Best Picture. The film took home the prize of Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture at the SAG Awards this past Sunday. The 91st Academy Awards, by the way, air February 24 on Denver7 starting at 6 p.m.
