On November 6 of this year, they held an advanced screening of Spotlight Movie for free in Chem 140. Where else can you see movies that are still in theaters (or haven’t gone to theatres yet) for free?

What is the purpose of Program Council? Program Council promotes live entertainment on campus including comedy, live music and advanced screenings of blockbuster films.
