Black History Month Program at Pass Road Elementary
Black History Month continues as February comes to an end and a local elementary hosted their annual program to celebrate and honor the month long event. News 25’s Payton Malone traveled out to Pass Road Elementary in Gulfport and has more. Black History Month is nearly over and from the sights and sounds at Pass Road Elementary School, students and teachers are wrapping up the month long celebration in a big way. Event Planner Judy Barkum said, “All of our kids participate and they have a ball.” There were even celebrity guest appearances. Students dressed up as prominent figures in black history. There was no shortage of entertainment. This year’s theme was Harlem Renaissance. “There was so much to do because there are writers, there are all kinds of great thinkers from that time and the music. You can’t say enough about the music from the Harlem Renaissance time,” said Barkum. Fourth grader Christian Scruggs is known to steal the show and this year was no different with his impersonation of jazz singer Cab Calloway. While Christian enjoyed performing for his classmates and signing autographs, he understands why this is important. “It’s important to show how black people were able to accomplish things and how they could go to school, like we could go to Pass Road Elementary because if it wasn’t for black history we wouldn’t be able to come here.” Students and parents filled the gym for the show. Performers like third grader Ijahnna Daniel look forward to the event all year long. “Everyone gets to watch and be inspired and learn about our history.” And to continue the celebration of diversity, Pass Road Elementary will also host a Hispanic and Latino celebration in October.

New movie theater opening at Edgewater Mall
A new state of the art movie theater is coming to Edgewater Mall in Biloxi. Officials say it will open next year. Biloxi hasn’t had a cinema of this kind since before Hurricane Katrina. Biloxi is known for its casino, beaches, resorts, and restaurants, but for years, the city’s entertainment line-up has been missing something. A brand new movie theater is planned to go up at Edgewater Mall and be completed by next November. Residents and Visitors are already excited. Louisiana Resident Marie DeYoung said, “I think it’s fantastic. I don’t go to casinos and I don’t even go for shows, but more of that kind of entertainment makes this an ideal place to visit for a family.” Premiere Cinemas will be built in the building that used to be Sears at the Edgewater Mall. The state of the art movie theater will have eight wall to wall digital screens and luxury reclining seats. Biloxi Resident Cameron Smith said, “I don’t go to the movies much just because of the drive. I feel like having one closer by would make me a lot more, I guess, up for going to the movie theater.” The cinema’s construction design includes plans to turn the pavement around where the new movie theater will stand into 20,000 square feet of landscaped green space. The addition will come with improvements to the food court and the mall’s entrances. All set to take place near the new restaurant called Barefoot Billy’s Grill and Bar which is scheduled to open early December. Edgewater Mall General Manager Terry Powell said, “It creates a great entertainment environment for the mall. This and some other things we’re anticipating for the future. In today’s retail environment you have to look outside the box.” When construction wraps up, the building will be filled with recliner seats. Get your popcorn ready, the grand opening is set for November 2018. “It’s one more feature for those who live locally and those who are visiting for a short little hop to entertain,” said DeYoung.
