Chance the Rapper is sending fans to see 'Marshall' for free

Chance the Rapper bought every ticket to the new Thurgood Marshall movieat two South Side theaters - just so everyone else can see it for free.

The two theaters are ShowPlace ICON, 1011 S Delano Ct and Chatham 14 Theaters, 210 W 87th St. Come to the one at 3. It also features appearances by singer Andra Day and famed civil rights attorney and host of TV One's "Evidence of Innocence" Benjamin Crump.

The film is about a case handled by Thurgood Marshall early in his career, before he became the first black justice on the U.S. Supreme Court. The film follows the true story of a 1940 case he took in a wealthy and conservative CT area where a white socialite accused her black chauffeur of rape and attempted murder. "The high profile case and the partnership with Friedman served as a template for Marshall's creation of the NAACP legal defense fund", the movie's website reads.

Showtimes for "Marshall" at Studio Movie Grill, Chatham on Friday are: 6:45 p.m., 7:30 p.m., 9:45 p.m., and 10:45 p.m.

A second tweet by Chance suggested those who are interested should show up at 3 p.m.

Chance has done more in the community than people give recognition for. The movie comes to theaters on Friday.

Check out the trailer for "Marshal" here.
