For students longing to watch their favorite classics on the big screen, Associated Students Inc. (ASI) just might hold the opportunity.
Again presenting its popular quarterly film series, ASI Events hosts “Oldies but Goodies,” a trio of films to be screened for free on campus.
Formerly held at Chumash Auditorium, the showings are now at a new venue – Spanos Theatre – a move triggered by student request.
“A lot of people requested more comfortable seating and a better quality of sound and picture.,” said Nicole Stivers, ASI Events student supervisor of marketing and public relations. “We decided to move the movie screenings into the Spanos Theatre in direct response to these requests.”
According to a press release, the first film of the quarter, “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” was shown April 3.
The next movie in the series, “Dazed and Confused,” will be presented at 8:15 tonight.
This film follows a group of incoming high school and junior high students through their adventures on their last day of school in 1976.
“The movie series is a lot of fun for groups of friends to come to,” Stivers said. “The movies are free and you get to see some of your favorite films on the big screen one more time.”
“Animal House,” the final movie of the series, will be shown April 17 at 8:15 p.m.
Doors at the Spanos Theatre open at 7:45 p.m. for each showing. Seating is on a first come, first serve basis.
