Campus film series moves to new theater, adds shows and concessions

The Student Union Board's long-running free film series will move this fall to 101 Carver, where upgraded audio and visual equipment will improve the 'movie theater' experience. The ISU Government of the Student Body and Inter Residence Hall Association are additional sponsors of "Cyclone Cinema" this year.

The series features recent releases (usually prior to release on DVD), each of which typically will have eight showings:

  • Thursday, Friday and Saturday: 7 and 10 p.m.
  • Sunday, 4 and 7 p.m.

The movies are free and open to the public. A concession counter that accepts cash, CyCash and Dining Dollars will sell popcorn, candy and soda.
