AKRON, Ohio — Canal Park and the Akron RubberDucks will be screening Black Panther at their second Movie Night on the field on Friday, September 18.

A portion of every ticket sold will be donated to the Akron Children's Hospital.

"Fans can enjoy a socially-distanced movie screening of Chadwick Boseman as King T'Challa and the kingdom of Wakanda on the 26' x 68' HD video board," a press release for the event states.

Gates to the park will open to the public at 5:30 p.m. with the movie beginning at 6:30 p.m. Fans can purchase four-person or eight-person pods on the field or reserve seats within the seating bowl.

Following guidelines and protocols of local and state health officials, capacity for the event will be capped at 1,300 fans in attendance. All seating on the field will be socially distanced and specific layouts will be enforced to adhere to protocol.

"Black Panther is an incredible story of heroism, and we can't wait to feature this film on our video board September 18," Jim Pfander, RuberDucks General manager stated. "Movie Night is a great opportunity for our fans to come back out to the ballpark, and we look forward to another night of Affordable, Family Fun here at Canal Park. We have worked hard all year to ensure that our fans are safe at Canal Park, and this movie night will be exactly the same as we have continued to update our ballpark policies with all the local and health authorities."

Tickets for the event are available for $10 and will go on sale beginning Monday, September 14 at 9 a.m. Concessions will be available for purchase inside the stadium.
