[Update May 19: Due to a schedule change, the Cine-Transformer will only be in Atlanta on May 20-21.]

To promote the upcoming Tupac Shakur movie, “All Eyez on Me,” a 17-city Mobile Cinema Tour is underway.

The “All Eyez on Me Experience” Cine-Transformer Tour spotlights a 53-foot, state-of-the-art mobile cinema that contains 91 seats, full projection and space inside for fans to get a glimpse of some behind-the-scenes footage of the movie, which was partially filmed throughout Atlanta in 2015-16.

The rolling movie theater will land in Atlanta for three days, May 20-22. On May 20-21, it will be on site at Wolf Creek Amphitheater during Funkfest (3025 Merk Road S.W. in College Park).  and on May 22, at Camp Creek Marketplace (3480 Marketplace Boulevard in East Point).

Some stops will include appearances by the cast and filmmakers, but nothing has been determined for the Atlanta dates.
