Big Boi appears to be deeply inspired by the Black Panther film. The OutKast co-founder wanted some viewers who may not be otherwise able to see the Marvel film to experience its power and glory. Yesterday (February 23), Daddy Fat Sax and his Celebrity Trailers company bought out an Atlanta, Georgia movie theater to show Ryan Coogler’s film to a group of hospice patients.

FOX 5 reports that the Epic Records star invited and transported patients and families from nearby Loving Arms Hospice to  Stonecrest Theaters. The Dungeon Family member also provided concessions for his Friday morning guests.

“It touches [Big Boi’s] heart because his family are on hospice as well,” the MC’s Celebrity Trailers partner Janice Ahmed said to the local station. “He wanted to get his family out to go ahead and still enjoy [their] life.”

Big Boi is no stranger to Hollywood. In addition to Idlewild, he has appeared in ATL, Who’s Your Caddy, and the animated sitcom, King Of The Hill.
