Black Panther is first comic book movie to be nominated for a Best Picture Oscar and, as such, the box office phenom will return to theaters for a one-week run next month. Better yet? In honor of Black History Month, all the screenings will be free. They kick off this Friday, February 1, and roll on through February 7 at 250 AMC locations throughout the country. In conjunction with the announcement, Disney has also revealed that it will donate a $1.5 million grant to the United Negro College Fund.

Black Panther put up a strong showing at this year’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, which is nice considering Bohemian Rhapsody and Green Book will likely maintain their awards show dominance at this year’s Oscars. The good news is that Ryan Coogler will return to write and direct its confirmed sequel whether it wins or not on February 24.
