Chance the Rapper Marshall Tickets

Chance the Rapper previously appeared onstage with Barack Obama at the annual National Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony in Washington, D.C., in December 2016. He bought all the tickets at two theaters for Friday screenings to the movie "Marshall".

Marshall tells the story of Thurgood Marshall, the country's first African-American Supreme Court justice.

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.

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", Chance wrote in a tweet. He also teased that something special might be going down at the 3 p.m. showing: "Come to the one at 3 I'm good at surprises and stuff", he said.

A New York Times review says the film revisits the case "with economy, a bit of gauzy nostalgia and likable performances". The biopic focuses on one of his most renowned cases as a lawyer when he represented a black man accused of raping a white woman.
