20th Century Fox(LOS ANGELES) -- 20th Century Fox and AMC Theaters are teaming up to give "under-served and under-represented youth" a chance to see the upcoming drama The Hate U Give.

According to Deadline, AMC is offering free screenings of the film in select cities on Saturday, October 6. 

The screenings, said to be a launching pad to "drive empowerment, empathy, and dialogue among communities," will be held at 11 a.m. in nine metro areas: Atlanta, Baltimore, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. 

Interested schools, community groups and non profit organizations can apply to screenings.thehateugive.com to be considered for a free screening.

Supporters can also donate to the cause and to screenings for classrooms around the country. 20th Century Fox's parent company, 21st Century Fox, will match donations up to $25,000. 

Additionally, there's a complimentary curriculum guide for middle school, high school and college students available about the novel and film. 

The Hate U Give, a film adaptation of Angela Thomas' novel of the same name, follows the story of a sixteen-year-old girl named Starr, played by Amandla Stenberg, who must decide if she'll stand up for what she believes after witnessing the shooting of her best friend by a police officer.

The Hate You Give opens nationwide October 19.
