If you really wanna see the Bob Marley documentary Marley—which comes out on April 20—and you don't want to wait until that night to see it in theaters, you're in luck. They're premiering the movie on Bob Marley's Facebook page at midnight!

You can rent Marley on Facebook for $6.99 starting at 12:01 am on April 20, which is the same day you can catch the movie in theaters. We think it'll help the movie really do numbers, since the Facebook page has 37 million followers. Part of that $6.99, which you can pay by credit card or Paypal, goes toward the charity Save the Children.

Facebook started renting movies last year with The Dark Knight, but this one is the first movie to premiere on Facebook and in movie theaters at the same time. Viewers will be able to chat with each other via Facebook while watching the movie, as well as tag and share clips from the movie.
