Oscar-nominee "Get Out" has free screening Feb. 19

Written by Maria Sciullo on .


Filmmaker Jordan Peele's Oscar-nominated "Get Out" will have a free screening on Presidents Day (Feb. 19) at the AMC Waterfront 22.  To get a ticket, go to the box office that day for the 7 p.m. show. First come, first served.

"Get Out," which stars Daniel Kaluuya ("Black Panther") and Allison Williams, is a thriller combining social commentary, humor and just a touch of gore. It debuted in February, 2017 and is up for Academy Awards in Best Picture, Best Director (Peele), Best Actor (Kaluuya) and Best Original Screenplay.

It recently scored a Best Picture win from the Writers Guild of America (WGA) and will vie for the same at the British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA) Sunday.

"When Jordan approached us about a way to thank fans one year after the release of 'Get Out,' we thought a Presidents' Day screening during Black History Month would be a wonderful way to commemorate the film's impact," said Jim Orr, president of distribution for Universal Pictures.

"The success of his stunning vision would not have been possible without the audience's passion for both 'Get Out's' groundbreaking storytelling and its deft use of art as society's mirror."

Fans are encouraged to use the #GetOutOneYearLater hashtag to share inspired artwork, stories and discussion on Twitter. For more information, go to
