Kid Cudi Treats Fans to Free Star Wars Screening

Kid Cudi has never attempted to hide his obsession with Star Wars, going so far as to even audition for the latest instalment The Force Awakens. Yet despite being tragically unsuccessful, like any devout fan, he’s doing his best to help edge the movie closer to the most successful of all time (not that it needs much help). On the weekend, he invited his fans to a private screening of The Force Awakens to fans who brought along some of his merchandise or a copy of his album.

“Do you love Star Wars?” he posted on Twitter. “Do you love me? Would you wanna see Star Wars: Force Awakens tonight with me, my treat?” 

“Why am I doing this? It’s Star Wars. Why not! And I thought it would be cool to start the year off watching a great film for the 3rd time with some great company.”

Fans were predictably thrilled, earning an opportunity to rub shoulders with the man himself, who also signed Kid Cudi merchandise – and even lightsabers. After the screening, fans took to Twitter to show their gratitude:

It’s not the first time Kid Cudi has reached out to his fans in such an unusual way. Late last year he held a heartfelt TED Talk in his hometown about his struggles with mental illness.
