Like the rest of us, Octavia Spencer is excited about "Black Panther" -- so much so that she is planning to buy out an entire showing of the superhero flick to share the magic.

The Oscar-winning actress shared her idea on Instagram Wednesday, writing that she wants "to ensure that all our brown children can see themselves as a superhero." In order to help do that, she wants to target an underserved community and offer free tickets to a screening at the local theater. Because she'll be in Mississippi when the film opens, she's looking for a cinema in the Magnolia state.

"I will be in MS when this movie opens. I think I will buy out a theatre in an underserved community there to ensure that all our brown children can see themselves as a superhero," she wrote. "I will let you know where and when Mississippi. Stay tuned."

It's a beautiful idea, and it's one she has had before. When her acclaimed film "Hidden Figures" was in theaters in late 2016 and 2017, she funded free showings in low-income Los Angeles neighborhoods, as EW points out, subsequently inspiring some of her co-stars to do the same. We hope she starts the trend again.

"Black Panther" opens Feb. 16.
