What is Films on Foss?
The Mayoral Youth Cabinet in partnership with the City of Middletown and Wesleyan University is bringing back our wildly successful movie series called "Films on Foss". The students wanted to provide a FREE event where multiple generations could come together and build community and both the City of Middletown and Wesleyan stepped up to the plate to make this a reality. Just as the name states, the films are show on campus at Foss Hill, just off Wyllys Ave (for GPS purposes you can enter 45 Wyllys Ave, Middletown, CT 06459). A community picnic which includes food trucks starts at 7PM and the movie starts around 8:30PM. 

The Mayoral Youth Cabinet is a group of teens dedicated to improving their community and building youth voice. They serve as a bridge between city leaders and youth and are engaged in various empowerment projects in conjunction with Middletown Youth Services.

Questions around the event can be directed to YSB staff at 860-854-6030.
