Each semester, we present a film nearly every weekend in the comfy Woodland theater of Davies Student Center. Each slate of titles offers a wide variety of quality films, both classics and recent award-winners, so students and community members can all find something they will enjoy.
The University Activities Commission Film Series will be offering in-person screenings this fall for students, faculty, and staff only. Unfortunately for the safety of our students and our campus, we will not allow community members to attend. Additionally, all attendees will be required to wear their masks and physically distance themselves from other filmgoers. We will not be providing free popcorn and please refrain from bringing your own favorite movie snacks.
We are deeply sorry, but we look forward to community members joining us again in the future. Any questions can be directed to our Films Chair Natalie Rehbein (email@example.com) or the Adviser Joann Martin (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Start times (open hours) are accurate but close times will vary depending on the movie's runtime so estimated close times are listed. There is free admission with Blugold Card.
