Chance the Rapper gives out free tickets to 'Marshall'

Chance the Rapper continues to show love for his city.

This time it looks like Chance is going even larger scale, though, buying out two theaters for the remainder of Friday screenings: Chatham 14 Theaters (210 W 87th St.) and the downtown Kerasotes Chicago ShowPlace ICON (1011 S Delano Ct.).

Indeed, all the tickets for the remaining Friday screenings of Marshall at both theaters were unavailable, according to Fandango and the Chatham Studio Movie Grill website. 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.

"It's all day, but the later it gets, the more people talk about it, the more seats get filled", Chance wrote in a tweet. "Come to the one at 3 I'm good at surprises and stuff", he said in a tweet.

A New York Times review says the film revisits the case "with economy, a bit of gauzy nostalgia and likable performances".

Rolling Stone calls the movie "a fiercely entertaining film, but not a great one" that nonetheless "gives us an electrifying glimpse of a great man in the making".
