LAKELAND — In November 2018, Marius Groover got here up with the thought of ​​treating what he thought had been 50 children to see the film “Black Panther” on the CMX Grand 10 Cinemas in Winter Haven. On the time of the present, there have been 300.

After that screening, Groover promised the children that if a sequel got here out he would sponsor them once more, and he stored his phrase.

On Saturday, beginning at 10:30 a.m. on the CMX Lakeside 18 & IMAX theater in Lakeland, 500 youngsters will probably be handled to the sequel to “Black Panther”: “Black Panther: Wakanda Perpetually”.

Groover, 40, an entrepreneur specializing in customized 3D printing, t-shirts and videography – amongst different mediums – mentioned the initiative went so effectively 4 years in the past that he was motivated to restart.

“I had the thought of ​​taking these 50 children with my very own cash to see the screening and I put it on Fb and the group got here collectively and other people had been sending cash, donations, to take extra children and it grew and grew,” says Groover, a Winter Haven native.
