City offers week of free movies for young people over spring break

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Metro Council announced today the city will offer free movies for the week of March 31st - April 4th.

The first-run movies will be shown Monday through Friday evening at the Shawnee Golf Course Clubhouse beginning at 7 p.m.

The spring break movies will include "The Butler", "12 Years A Slave" and documentaries "Little Africa" and "The Dirt Bowl". The movies will be followed by discussions to give young people a chance to speak their mind.

Cheri Bryant Hamilton is partnering with the group Getting All People (GAP) to host the events. 

"We found the discussion format was very positive with our recent presentation during February of the PBS series "The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross," Hamilton said in a press release. "I think asking young people what they think about any subject is one way of connecting to them to their history and showing that we can listen to their thoughts on any subject."

The events will include free popcorn and pizza.
