The actor, who plays Finn in the new film, has been popping in to screenings of the film and surprising fans with a special in-house cameo appearance.

While all of his pop-ups were in New York City, he didn't play brand favorites: Boyega appeared in Manhattan and Brooklyn at AMC, Regal, United Artists and Williamsburg Cinemas.
