Here’s How You Can See Oscars Best Picture Nominee ‘Get Out’ for FREE in Theaters
If you were hoping to watch (or rewatch) the Oscar-nominated film Get Out before the Academy Awards roll around in March, you’re in luck. The film is heading back to theaters on Presidents’ Day, and you can see it for free.
To celebrate one year since the movie’s release in theaters, select AMC locations will offer free Presidents’ Day screenings of the film, which is nominated for multiple Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director for Jordan Peele.
Get Out’s official Twitter account shared the news on Tuesday, with a video of Peele. “As a small thank you to the fans that made the film a success, Universal and I wanted to give something back,” he explained.

Universal Pictures president of distribution Jim Orr added in a press release: “When Jordan approached us about a way to thank fans one year after the release of Get Out, we thought a Presidents’ Day screening during Black History Month would be a wonderful way to commemorate the film’s impact. The success of his stunning vision would not have been possible without the audience’s passion for both Get Out’s groundbreaking storytelling and its deft use of art as society’s mirror.”

The movie, which stars Daniel Kaluuya and Allison Williams, will be screened at 55 AMC Theatre locations in major cities across the country on February 19. And each showing will be free — for those who are lucky enough to get a seat.
The screenings will be held on a first-come, first-served basis, so you might want to line up early to make sure you nab a spot, especially since each location will be holding just one viewing. You’ll also need to bring some photo ID with you, and you’ll be limited to one ticket per person (which means each member of your group will need to be present to get in).
Gather up your besties and make plans for February 19 at 7pm.
Will you be checking out Get Out (for FREE) when it returns to theaters? Let us know @BritandCo!

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
