The Marvel smash -- which is just $344,000 shy of crossing the $700 million mark at the domestic box office -- will screen for free at 7 p.m. July 14 at Michigan Stadium. 

The showing, which is open to the public, is part of the Movie Night at Michigan Stadium program, which was launched in 2014. Past movies in the series include "The Lego Movie" and "Beauty and the Beast." 

The film will be shown on the video screens in both end zones of the stadium. Season ticket holders will be allowed to enter the stadium beginning at 5 p.m. and are allowed to sit on the field, while members of the general public can enter the stadium beginning at 6 p.m. and will be seated in sections 8 through 15 in the south end zone of Michigan Stadium. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis.  

Tickets to the screening are required and are available online

"Black Panther" opened in February and is the third highest-grossing film in history at the domestic box office, behind "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" and "Avatar."
