Films on Foss is an outdoor movie series created by the Middletown Mayoral Youth Cabinet. They've worked in partnership with the City of Middletown and Wesleyan University to create what might be the premier youth-led community event in Connecticut. The goal of Films on Foss is to bring the Middletown community together in a fun and engaging way. To supplement the movie showing, there are food trucks, popcorn, face
painting, and other activities. The evening starts with a picnic, and the movie begins at sundown.
The movies are held on Foss Hil, which is located at the heart of Wesleyan University. Foss Hill is
not just a central part of Wesleyan, but also of Middletown as a whole.
