( Akron, Ohio ) - Thousands of kids and their families are seeing a special sneak peek of Space Jam: A New Legacy starring LeBron James in Akron on Thursday.
The Lebron James Family Foundation is hosting the event at the Akron Civic Theater. They provided tickets, popcorn, beverages and candy to a full house during each showing.
The families are seeing the movie early as it doesn't officially premiere until Friday, and they're getting the literal "red carpet treatment" as they enter.
Members of LeBron’s family are expected to attend the 8pm showing – although it’s not known if LeBron will attend.
