Black Panther returns to the big screen with free screenings for Giving Tuesday at nonprofit art house theaters nationwide on Tuesday, November 27th. Presented by Film Comment, a publication of the Film Society of Lincoln Center, and supported by the Art House Convergence, the event will feature a post-screening live-streamed Q&A with director Ryan Coogler. The one-night-only event offers audiences an opportunity to experience the acclaimed film on the big screen once again with their local communities.

This special showing comes just as Oscar season is about to kick into gear. Black Panther is being pushed as Marvel’s favorite to earn multiple nods from the Academy, including a campaign for Best Picture. This isn’t necessarily a special Oscar campaign event, but it does align with theatrical re-releases of Oscar contenders that were released earlier in the year.

Directed by Coogler and starring Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy SerkisBlack Panther was a bonafide cultural phenomenon when it hit theaters this February. The Marvel movie shattered box office records and earning awards buzz for Coogler’s script and direction as well as Jordan’s powerful performance as the villain Killmonger. It’s currently the “commercial” favorite to earn a Best Picture nod — a first for superhero movies — though the Academy’s flirtation with a Best Popular Film category have some worrying that it could be shut out.

Here is the synopsis for Black Panther:

After the death of his father, T’Challa returns home to the African nation of Wakanda to take his rightful place as king. When a powerful enemy suddenly reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king — and as Black Panther — gets tested when he’s drawn into a conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people.
