Attorney and former state Rep. Juan LaFonta, who may be best-known for his catchy Big Freedia commercials, is providing 500 free tickets to view the new “Black Panther” superhero movie at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 15 at the AMC Elmwood Palace Theater — plus free popcorn for kids.
The first-come, first-served screening will include red carpet photo ops with local professionals and entertainers. LaFonta said that he hopes to use the superhero movie as an opportunity to expose children to the real-life heroes of the community.
The theater is located behind the Elmwood Shopping Center at 1200 Elmwood Park Blvd in Harahan. Call 504.288.4011 for information.
