The South Side branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is sponsoring an advanced movie screening of "Mandela: A Long Walk to Freedom" as a fundraiser for its NAACP ACT-SO Program.

The 7 p.m. showing is at the AMC Ford City Theaters, 7601 S. Cicero Ave. and tickets can be bought at the door or online for $20. The movie, which opens nationwide Wednesday, chronicles the life of the late South African President Nelson Mandela, who died this month at age 95.
