The film, originally released on February 24, 2017, grossed more than $250 million in worldwide ticket sales.

'It's been a year since Get Out opened in theaters, ' he said. "As a small thank you to the fans that made the film a success, Universal and I wanted to give something back", he explained. "It's all about that theatrical experience, so please go".

Our 45th president may not be worth celebrating, but Jordan Peele is.

The multi-talented star has been outspoken in his distaste for Donald Trump since the 2016 election and has carried his views about politics, social justice and the like into his work.

The free screenings will take place at 55 theaters across the country - including at the AMC Elmwood Palace in Harahan - on President's Day, which is Monday (Feb. 19). And each showing will be free - for those who are lucky enough to get a seat. Tickets will be distributed "on a first-come, first-served basis".
