Hollywood actress Kristen Bell has joined the ranks of celebrities buying out movie theaters for showing of the new movie "Love, Simon" – and the one she's selected is in the Twin Cities.
The star of "The Good Place" and "Veronica Mars" has bought every seat in the theater for the 4 p.m. Sunday showing of "Love, Simon" at the AMC Southdale in Edina.
It means anyone who gets tickets for that showing will be treated to a free movie.
She joins other stars including Neil Patrick Harris in buying out theaters for the movie, a coming-of-age and coming-out comedy-drama released last week.
"Love, Simon is a KNOCKOUT," Bell wrote on Instagram. "There are so many important stories that don’t get made. I am so grateful this one did. ❤️"
"I had absolutely nothing to do with the making of this movie—I just have a huge crush on it and I’d like to share the love. Minneapolis, please enjoy a screening of Love, Simon this Sunday on me. :) Enjoy!"
