Michael Moore is hitting Trump supporters with a nice surprise just in time for Election Day. Moore revealed Tuesday that his new film Michael Moore in TrumpLand would be making a last-minute premiere at the IFC Center in New York City that evening. The best part? Tickets for the surprise event are absolutely free:

However, according to Moore, the higher-ups involved with mounting the performance ultimately deemed him "too controversial" for such a thing. Peep the official synopsis of TrumpLand below, per IFC:
See the film Ohio Republicans tried to shut down. Oscar-winner Michael Moore dives right into hostile territory with his daring and hilarious one-man show, deep in the heart of TrumpLand in the weeks before the 2016 election.

Though not as down-to-the-wire, Moore took a similarly well-time approach with the release of his 2004 documentary Fahrenheit 9/11. The film, which premiered at that year's Cannes Film Festival and ultimately bagged the Palme d'Or, took an incisive look at the George W. Bush White House and the oft-criticized invasion of Iraq in 2003:
Michael Moore in TrumpLand is expected to begin theatrical screenings nationwide as soon as Oct. 19 and will also be available on iTunes.
