A screening of “Black Panther” next week in Orem will mark the beginning of the SCERA Center for the Arts’ 2019 summer outdoor movie series.

The Oscar-winning film, which stars Chadwick Boseman and Michael B. Jordan, follows T’Challa, aka Black Panther, heir to the African nation of Wakanda, as he returns home to take his place as king after his father’s death and fights an enemy from the country’s past.

“Black Panther” is rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America “for prolonged sequences of action violence, and a brief rude gesture,” and its runtime is 134 minutes.

The screening is scheduled to start Wednesday at dusk at the SCERA Shell Outdoor Theatre at SCERA Park, 600 S. 400 East, Orem. Admission costs $3-$4, seating is general admission and guests are invited to bring blankets to sit on or rent chairs for $1 each.

Guests may also purchase an outdoor movie series pass that includes admission to all six films showing this summer for $9-$12. More information is available at the SCERA main office, by calling (801) 225-ARTS and online at scera.org.
