• Free tickets for students to Selma

    Principals at schools with middle and high school grades | Deadline: February 1

    Local funders have generously donated money for City Schools students to see the movie Selma for free at participating theaters for a limited time. Note that the opportunity, originally available to students in grades 7 to 10, has now been extended to grades 11 and 12.

    To be admitted free, students must present proof that they are in grades 7 to 12 at Baltimore City Public Schools by showing a valid student ID, report card, letter from the principal, or a combination of these. Please note that not all student IDs include a student's grade or the school district's name, so some students may need to present both an ID and one of the documents named above. Students can attend any screening at any one of the participating theaters. For schools interested in organizing field trips to these theaters, please contact the Group Sales Representative for the respective theater.

    Principals: Help promote this special event at your school using this prepared school public announcement script.

    Time period
    Friday, January 16, through Sunday, February 1, or until the ticket offer sells out.
