“As we celebrate Black History Month and look ahead to Women’s History Month in March, this story of empowerment and perseverance is more relevant than ever. We at 21CF were inspired by the grassroots movement to bring this film to audiences that wouldn’t otherwise be able to see it – audiences that might include future innovators and barrier-breakers – and we wanted to support and extend that movement,” said Liba Rubenstein, 21st Century Fox’s SVP of Social Impact.

“The storytelling and message that Hidden Figures carries is endearing and inspiring, and based on the remarkable community support this movie has received, we have witnessed first-hand the powerful impact it is having on audiences,” added Elizabeth Frank, EVP and Chief Content & Programming Officer, AMC, “We’re honored to partner with Fox to help further the reach of this message to moviegoers across the country.”

This is absolutely awesome! If you have not seen this film, I implore you to do so as soon as possible!
