As we head into the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend, North Texas students will get a chance to see the film version of the historic Selma to Montgomery march.

With a valid school ID or report card, students who are in the 7th, 8th or 9th grade will get free admission, while supplies last, to see the Golden Globe-nominated Selma at participating DFW theaters, which include AMC NorthPark in Dallas, Cinemark Webb Chapel in Dallas, Cinemark 14 in Cedar Hills, Angelika Film Center in Dallas and Studio Movie Grill at Northwest Highway in Dallas.
