(AMP) — This month will mark the 15th Anniversary of Eminem’s “8 Mile” movie.
To celebrate, Eminem’s Shady Records will be hosting a special screening of the movie on Nov. 8 at Detroit’s Bel Air Luxury Cinema.
Bel Air also hosted the movie’s Detroit premiere in November 2002.
All proceeds from ticket sales will benefit The Verses Project, which is a branch of the Community Music School (CMS) – Detroit. Money will also be raised that night with a special “8 Mile” concession package.
Shady Records will also be offering special “8 Mile”-inspired merchandise, available on their site next month.
The movie, set in 1995 Detroit, stars Eminem as Jimmy (B-Rabbit) Smith who is trying to launch a career in hip-hop.
Eminem won the Academy Award for Best Original Song for “Lose Yourself.”
