Man dressed as Black Panther proposes to his girlfriend at New York Alamo Drafthouse

In case you live under a rock, “Black Panther” hit theaters this weekend and cemented itself as an instant classic, breaking box office records in the process. Theater lines went out the door, screenings sold out, fans dressed in traditional African attire and some even donned the Black Panther costume.

REVIEW: ‘Black Panther’ wows for all audiences

And at an Alamo Drafthouse in New York, a man dressed as the Black Panther himself took the biggest leap and surprised his girlfriend with a proposal before the film. 

According to another tweet, the man didn’t actually have a ticket to the movie screening and had to leave after the proposal. 

Best wishes to the happy couple! As they say: Wakanda forever.
