This is one of the reason’s why we love Octavia Spencer here at FirstLadyB!!! Remembering her life before she was an Oscar winner, the actress offered free screenings to low income families of the hit movie Hidden Figures that she has a starring role in, because as a child her mother wouldn’t of been able to take her and her siblings.
The actress bought out the 8 p.m. screening at a Baldwin Hills movie theater for the Martin Luther King Day weekend, she announced in an Instagram post.
“If you know a family in need that would like to see our movie but can’t afford it have them come,” Spencer wrote. “It’s first come first served. My mom would not have been able to afford to take me and my siblings. So, I’m honoring her and all single parents this #mlkweekend. Pass the word.”
