Generous donors offer free screenings of ‘Just Mercy’ this weekend

JACKSON, Wyo. — Chris and Crystal Sacca want you to see “Just Mercy” in theaters.

Today and tomorrow only, all screenings of the new movie are free to the public. Seating is first-come-first-served, but all you have to do is show up to the MovieWorks Cinema. The Saccas have bought out the theater so that screenings are free.

The couple wears many hats: as investors, entrepreneurs, activists, ect. More recently, they have shifted their attention to “ongoing efforts to rescue democracy, heal the planet, promote diversity within venture capital and technology, and reform our criminal justice system,” according to Chris’s website.

“Just Mercy” is a film about criminal justice and prison reform. It follows the case of Walter McMillian (Jamie Voxx), a man sentenced to death for a murder he did not commit, and his world-renowned civil rights defense attorney Byran Stevenson (Michael B. Jordan) who fights to free him.

Friday’s free screenings are at 4:45 and 7:45 p.m. Saturday’s are at 1:45, 4:45, and 7:45 p.m. Visit Jackson Hole Cinemas’ website to learn more about the film.
