Atlanta digital advertising agency, Hughes Media, is sponsoring a field trip for the students of Cumberland Academy of Georgia, a private school serving children with special needs in Atlanta, to see Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens the morning of its nationwide premier in theaters. On December 18, Cumberland’s students will take buses to Lefont Theaters to view the film.

Cumberland Academy of Georgia specializes in the needs of students with autism, Asperger’s, ADD, ADHD and other learning disabilities. The school’s environment emphasizes social growth alongside academic education. Currently, many of the students are enrolled in a film class at the school, which is why the Star Wars: Episode VII advanced screening opportunity is particularly relevant and valuable. Students will get an exciting look into the creative and technological accolades of the film. The screening of the movie will take place during a time when students are creating short films of their own.

"Many of these students have sensory issues and having the opportunity to see the film with just our school in the theater is a real treat," said Debbi Scarborough, headmaster of Cumberland Academy of Georgia. “To kick off the holiday break, they will also be allowed to dress up for the event. We are grateful to Lefont Theaters in Sandy Springs and to Hughes Media digital agency for making this possible for our students.”

Hughes Media has supported the school since its inception in 2007, creating its first website and marketing materials. “As marketing experts, we know this type of event gives the school and these special kids a ‘cool factor’ that will outlive the day of the movie,” says Deedra Hughes, president of Hughes Media. “The private viewing at Lefont Theater will provide students with a wide variety of exciting topics to discuss, as well as foster a sense of pride and esteem for their school.”
