The hit horror film “Get Out” will celebrate its anniversary with free screenings on Monday, Presidents Day.
The debut film from comedian Jordan Peele, “Get Out” tells the story of a young black photographer (Daniel Kaluuya) whose first meeting with his white girlfriend’s parents goes even worse than he expected. The film became the first $100 million debut by a black director and went on to gross more than $250 million worldwide on its $5 million budget.
“Get Out” also earned four Oscar nominations, including best picture and best actor for Kaluuya (currently starring in “Black Panther”).
Locally, “Get Out” will play at 7 p.m. Monday at the AMC Raceway 10 in Westbury. Free tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis and may be picked up at the theater when the box office opens on Monday.
