SZA Rents Out A Theater For Fans To See ‘The Woman King’.
One of the most talked-about and critically acclaimed movies of the year so far is The Woman King. SZA, one of the movie’s greatest fans, announced today on Twitter that she has booked out a cinema in New Jersey.
“PLEASE GO SEEE ITTTT !,” she said in a tweet.
SZA won’t be present because she will be appearing in Ghana at the Global Citizen Festival. However, she is always seeking opportunities to give back to New Jersey, no matter where she is. She collaborated with TAZO and American Forests to plant trees in communities impacted by environmental racism last year.
“My grandma lives in Newark, N.J., and there are no trees anywhere,” SZA said in an interview with Elle last year. “Growing up around that area was a downer.”
Viola Davis first discussed The Woman King earlier this year, during an interview with Oprah, which premiered on Netflix this April/ “Looking at all these young women who are a part of this story, I’m telling you, I see the future in a lot of these young girls,” she said. “The confidence they have, the work ethic they have, it made me feel so proud just looking at how they showed up every day for work, how they understood the assignment.”
