Focus Features & Regal Are Offering FREE SCREENINGS of ‘Harriet’ to Honor Black History Month!

 

Hello World,

In celebration of Black History Month, Focus Features and Regal have partnered to offer free screenings of Harriet in 50 theatres around the United States on Tuesday, February 4, and Tuesday, February 11. The film depicts the life of one of history’s most courageous African American heroes, Harriet Tubman, bringing her story to the big screen for the very first time. For her work as the titular role of Harriet, Cynthia Erivo has been nominated for two Academy Awards®, for Best Actress and Best Original Song for “Stand Up,” which she co-wrote with Joshuah Brian Campbell.

Below is the official trailer of the movie:

Moviegoers can get free tickets through Gofobo here.

Erivo leads an incredible supporting cast of Tony Award® winner Leslie Odom Jr. (Murder on the Orient Express, Broadway’s Hamilton), Joe Alwyn (Mary Queen of ScotsThe Favourite), Janelle Monáe (Hidden FiguresMoonlight) Vodie Curtis Hall (“For the People,” Romeo & Juliet), and Vanessa Bell Calloway (Coming to America, Saints and Sinners). Kasi Lemmons (Eve’s Bayou, Black Nativity,) directs and co-writes the script with producer Gregory Allen Howard (Remember the TitansAli). Harriet is also produced by Debra Martin Chase (The Princess DiariesThe Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants) and Daniela Taplin Lundberg (The Kids Are All RightBeasts of No Nation).

Based on the thrilling and inspirational life of an iconic American freedom fighter, Harriet tells the extraordinary tale of Harriet Tubman’s escape from slavery and transformation into one of America’s greatest heroes. Haunted by memories of those she left behind, Harriet (Erivo) ventures back into dangerous territory on a mission to lead others to freedom. With allies like abolitionist William Still (Odom Jr.) and the entrepreneurial Marie Buchanon (Monáe), Harriet risks capture and death to guide hundreds to safety as one of the most prominent conductors of the Underground Railroad.

The Super Bowl Gospel Celebration will also honor NFL siblings and American Cancer Society ambassadors Quinnen Williams (New York Jets) and Quincy Williams (Jacksonville Jaguars) with the 2020 Faith In Action Award.

In collaboration with the Super Bowl Gospel Celebration and BET Networks, the American Cancer Society will be featured during the broadcast to share the critical importance of cancer prevention and awareness. Viewers will have a chance to donate $10 or more to the American Cancer Society by texting HOPE to 20222, or by clicking here to donate online anytime.

Originating at Super Bowl XXXIII in 1999, the annual event joins together key NFL Players, top Gospel/Contemporary Christian and mainstream GRAMMY® Award-winning artists and special guests all on one stage to bring audiences an evening of uplifting music and inspirational messages.

By far, the largest multicultural event to take place during Super Bowl weekend in its 21-year run as an NFL-sanctioned event, SBGC has featured artists including Patti LaBelle, Yolanda Adams, Gladys Knight, Natalie Grant, MaryMary, Fantasia, Donnie McClurkin, Anthony Hamilton, among many others.
