Baltimore Elementary School Students Receive Free Tickets and Concessions to Black Panther: Wakanda Forever Premiere


BALTIMORE– Hundreds of elementary school students were surprised with free tickets to see the premiere of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever on Sunday at the Senator Theater.

The lucky students of City Springs Elementary Middle School learned their reward Monday morning.

And, they were excited.

“I feel really good because we worked hard for this,” student Amira said.

The first is a collaboration between WJZ and The Baltimore Baltimore, which organizes a day at the movies for hundreds of school children.

The event features the premiere, concessions and inspirational messages from WJZ talent, the Baltimore banner and Ravens players.

The premiere of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will be an experience that teachers like Wyatt Oroke hope will be not only memorable, but also an opportunity for classroom conversations.

“The representation is great,” Oroke said. “Seeing yourself as kings and queens, leaders and superheroes is amazing. Having access to those images is just as important.”

Through community partnerships, the goal is to support positive stories and experiences for Baltimore’s future generation.

“We believe education is fundamental to strengthening, uniting and inspiring our communities,” said Andre Jones, Head of Culture and People Diversity at the Baltimore Banner.
