Brooklyn Castle Philadelphia Premiere

The Pennsylvania Statewide Afterschool/Youth Development Network (PSAYDN) is pleased to invite you to the Philadelphia Premiere of Brooklyn Castle, a compelling documentary about the power of chess and the importance of after school education. Amidst financial crises and unprecedented public school budget cuts, Brooklyn Castle takes an intimate look at the challenges and triumphs facing members of a junior high school's champion chess team.

Let the games begin! The evening's events kick off with friendly games of chess played by local school students throughout the lobby of the Prince Music Theater. Immediately after the screening of Brooklyn Castle join us for the Lights On Afterschool Panel Discussion. Moderated by ASAP Executive Director Justin Ennis, a panel including Brooklyn Castle Director/Producer Katie Dellamaggiore, Chess Teacher Greg Shahade, and Director of PSAYDN, Kacy Conley will discuss the impact of after school education.
