So did you ever see a preview for a movie and say "I WANT TO SEE THAT!" and then just never go? Movie theaters are EXPENSIVE nowadays. Especially to students. Working on campus, you make $10 usually. A movie costs almost $11. That's a whole hour of work. Not including drinks, popcorn, jujubees, m&ms, twizzlers and any thing else that may induce a sugar rush.
Well UML recognizes that students aren't exactly rollin' in the dough, so they have a new program on the weekends here. It's a series called "Movies That Rock." Basically they show a new release that just left the theaters. It's FREE to UML students, and you can bring your own popcorn. What's better than that?!
You have to work on the weekend, THAT'S OKAY! Here's how it works. On Friday nights, you can see the movies on South Campus in O'Leary 222. On Sunday nights, you can see the movies in the Fox Common. AND on Monday nights, you can see the movies at the ICC. They always start at 8pm.
Last weekend (to kick off my birthday weekend), my friends Dawn and Debbie and myself went to see Up! in O'Leary. I LOVEEE UP! It's so cute and funny (and sad... weird how that works). It wasn't too crowded and we got decent seats. O'Leary222 is perfect because it's set up like a movie theaters with the different levels.
So now that you know about YET ANOTHEr thing to do at UML... here are a few movies coming up in October that you should go see (FOR FREE):
Weekend starting: 10/9 - The Hangover, 10/16 - Transformers 2, 10/23 - The Ugly Truth, 10/30 - The Orphan.
