Best Animated Feature Academy Award-winner Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is getting a free screening 6:30 p.m. March 29 at Arizona State University’s Sun Devil Stadium, 500 E. Veterans Way, Tempe.
Gates open at 5:30 p.m. March 29 (next Friday), with free parking in Lot 59 on the stadium’s north side. Northeast and southeast stadium entry will be open.
The screening, which is open to ASU students and “the extended Phoenix community,” is being billed as a “family movie night,” and will also feature an exclusive interview with directors Peter Ramsey, Bob Persichetti and Rodney Rothman.
According to organizers, the directors will speak about the importance that inclusion had on the making of the film. (The storyline and its theme of inclusion inspired the hashtag #AnyoneCanWearTheMask.) Attendees will be given Spider-Man masks to put on when prompted by the directors at the end of the interview.
This event is hosted by ASU 365 Community Union. The interview was made possible by ASU Film Spark, Marvel Studios, Sony Pictures Animation and ASU alumnus Michael Helfant.
