Correction: The original version of this story said the event would take place in Downtown Summerlin. According to representatives from the film, the experience has been moved to the Las Vegas South Premium Outlets.

Fans excited for the upcoming Tupac biopic "All Eyez on Me" got a sneak peek at the Las Vegas South Premium Outlets on May 14.

As part of "The All Eyez on Me Experience" Cine-Transformer Tour, Codeblack Films is touring the country with a 53-foot mobile cinema to give fans a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the making of the movie. Outside the vehicle, fans got free merchandise and discounted ticket coupons courtesy of Atom Tickets. Select stops on the tour have also seen live appearances by cast and crew from the film.

"The whole goal of this, in the spirit of Tupac, is to go out and reach the fans," said Codeblack/Lionsgate representative Anthony Rose. 

Tupac's fan base is passionate about their favorite hip-hop artist, who was killed in Las Vegas when he was 25 years old.

"Where I grew up he was a major key. The community looked up to him," said Baby Down from Los Angeles, who attended the mobile tour event in Las Vegas.

Baby Down says that Tupac also offered a message of living life to the fullest.

"Through all the pain and all the struggle and everything that's going on in the world, you gotta enjoy all the time you got on this earth," he said. "You never know when you're gonna check out."
