Nearly a year after it began its initial, record-shattering theatrical run, Black Panther is making a return to theaters.

After the film won the Screen Actors Guild’s top award last night and received a historic seven Oscar nominations last week, Disney announced Black Panther is coming back to theaters from Feb. 1-7 to celebrate Black History Month.

Black Panther will play at 250 AMC Theatres locations around the U.S., and according to Disney, the screenings (which will take place twice a day every day) will be free for everyone. Disney also announced that it donated a $1.5 million grant to the United Negro College Fund.

Black Panther is groundbreaking for many reasons, including the rich diversity of voices behind its success,” Walt Disney Company chairman and CEO Robert A. Iger said in a statement. “The story also showcases the power of knowledge to change the world for the better, and the importance of ensuring everyone has access to it. We’re proud to provide thousands of free screenings of Black Panther in hopes it will continue to inspire audiences, and to support UNCF with a $1.5 million grant to make the dream of higher education a reality for more students.”
