City of Birmingham Mayor’s Office Division of Youth Services Announces its 2017 Summer Movie Series

The City of Birmingham Mayor’s Office Division of Youth Services (DYS), in partnership with Phoenix Theaters The Edge 12, is continuing its efforts to encourage learning throughout the summer. To recognize young people involved in summer enrichment programs and activities, DYS once again is unveiling its Youth First Summer Movie Series!

The Youth First Summer Movies Series, which kicks off Friday, June 2, will feature the latest summer blockbusters. To earn tickets, all you have to do is participate in summer enrichment!  Birmingham youth and youth service providers who meet one of the select criteria below can earn a FREE ticket for themselves and a guest to attend a showing of the Youth First Summer Movie Series.

Participation criteria:

  • Operate or lead Birmingham youth in a structured enrichment program (youth service providers only)
  • Must participate in a summer enrichment program in the City of Birmingham this summer (must show proof of enrollment)
  • Present a book report on one book that you have read this summer (must use DYS’ Book Form).  Book reports must be in the child’s handwriting. For children six and under, parents may fill out the Book Form on a book they have read to their child this summer.  One book report provides FREE tickets for only one movie.
