Philadelphia is one of the eight new cities added to the #SelmaforStudents initiative, which allows students in 7th, 8th and 9th grade to see the new film Selma for free with a report card or student ID.

To see Selma for free, students can take their report card or student ID to UA Riverview Plaza Stadium 17,  University City Penn 6, AMC Franklin Mills Mall 14, the Pearl Theatre at Avenue North, Reel Cinemas Narberth 2, UA Regal Grant Plaza 19, or UA Regal Main Street Theatre 6. 

Initially launched in New York City, #SelmaforStudents was spearheaded by a group of African-American business owners who created a fund to send 27,000 students to see the film gratis.  Led by Lydia Mallett of DuPont, local business leaders hope to raise $20,000 so 2,000 students can view the film for free.
