Octavia Spencer knows what it’s like to grow up with very little money and miss out on things other kids get to enjoy, like going to the movies.
So on Friday, to begin the Martin Luther King. Jr. weekend and to honor the memory of her mother, she bought out a showing of her new movie, “Hidden Figures,” at a theater in Los Angeles and invited people who didn’t have enough money for tickets to see it.
She issued the invitation on Instagram.
“If you know a family in need that would like to see our movie but can’t afford it have them come,” she wrote on Instagram, where she posted a Stella Blu watercolor image of her character in the movie. “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.”
