Love was in the air at a Black Panther screening at the Alamo Drafthouse theater in Brooklyn.
Fans in the audience at the 10:15 showing of Black Panther were treated to an unexpected romantic gesture. A man dressed in a Black Panther costume came into the theater before the movie started. He found his girlfriend and proposed to her.
The proposal was accepted. Other moviegoers who witnessed the surprising event caught the moments after on social media.
So this couple just got engaged in my #BlackPanther viewing!

Twitter users also noted that the man in the Black Panther costume didn’t even have a ticket for that showing. He just knew his girlfriend and her friend would be there.
