Ambridge Youth Summer Pop-Ups, formally Expression Bridge now an Ambridge Rotary Club community outreach program, gathered 40 children who participated in past two summer events, to watch the movie, Black Panther.
Approximately 169 youth and chaperones, from 5 different communities across the region, had their tickets and snacks paid by a sponsoring local Sewickley family.
"It was great to see so many local kids enjoy being children together, then to arrive at the theater and see kids from all over the Pittsburgh area in one place for one purpose - fun - no worries, no tension, just smiles, shared Marlon Kittrell, chaperone for Summer Pop-Ups.
"I got a true sense of what community outreach is about" added Kittrell.
Karen Ferrick-Roman, Tull Family Theater Director of Communications and Education, shared that the theater’s goal is to at least double the number served in its second year of operation by securing regular programming support from individuals, corporations, and foundations.
"This is the second time the Tull Family Theater reached out to the community offering a free movie to the area youth, shared Felicia Mycyk, Ambridge Rotary Club President and Summer Pop- Up chaperone.
Mycyk added "Kids remember activities like this. Thank you to everyone who donated there time and facilities to the pop-ups over the last two summers. "
