It's something of a birthday present for Jordan Peele's film, released last February 24, a thank you gesture to the enthusiastic fan base, and a celebration of its four Academy Award nominations.

"Get Out" also earned four Oscar nominations, including best picture and best actor for Kaluuya (currently starring in "Black Panther"). Quite an accomplishment for a first time director.

Get a free ticket on a first-come, first-served basis when the movie screens at 7 p.m. on February 19 at 55 participating AMC Theaters. More on the announcement below.

If you didn't see Get Out when it was in theaters, now you have a chance to right that wrong.

Each location will host one 7:00 p.m. screening and tickets will be handed out on first come, first-served basis. Each guest must present a valid ID to receive the ticket, with a limit of one ticket per valid ID presented, while supplies last. Peele and "Get Out" studio parent Universal Pictures this week announced free screenings of Peele's horror satire, intended both to mark Black History Month and to thank audiences for helping it become a success.
