Actress Octavia Spencer, who won an Oscar for her performance in The Help, is planning to buy out tickets for Black Panther for an entire theater in Mississippi to ensure that children and families in underserved communities will get a chance to see the film.

“I will be in MS when this movie opens," said Spencer said Spencer on Instagram. "I think I will buy out a theatre in an underserved community there to ensure that all our brown children can see themselves as a superhero. I will let you know where and when Mississippi. Stay tuned. #KingsAndQueensWillRise."

This would not be the first time Spencer has bought out a theater to provide tickets to a community in need. She previously purchased screenings of her 2016 film Hidden Figures in low-income areas of Los Angeles.

Black Panther is due out in theaters February 16.
