The film covers Thurgood Marshall's early years as a young lawyer tasked with defending a black chauffeur in a highly publicized sexual assault case.
Domestic violence wanted list calls for public help, offers reward
Organizers say a triple domestic violence homicide in Madison is still fresh in the minds of those attending. On average, there are more than 200,000 phone calls placed daily to domestic violence hotlines nationwide.
Indeed, all the tickets for the remaining Friday screenings of Marshall at both theaters were unavailable, according to Fandango and the Chatham Studio Movie Grill website. The Chicago Sun-Times has a story.
A second tweet by Chance suggested those who are interested should show up at 3 p.m. "It's all day, but the later it gets, the more people talk about it, the more seats get filled", he tweeted. "Come to the one at 3. I'm good at surprise and stuff".
Rolling Stone calls the movie "a fiercely entertaining film, but not a great one" that nonetheless "gives us an electrifying glimpse of a great man in the making".
