While the latter doesn’t sound the least bit appealing—and let’s be honest and admit that it’s not—there is at least one good thing summer Techies can look forward to doing.
That’s right! This summer the Student Center will be hosting the 7th annual Flicks on 5th! This is an opportunity for students to kick back and watch a good film while enjoying the refreshing cool night air.
As the name implies, the movies will be screened outside in Technology Square. This summer, Flicks on 5th will present a movie every Wednesday night during the month of June. In case of rain, an alternative movie showing will be scheduled for July 11.
For this year, each movie night will be themed in accordance with the film being shown. This summer’s movie line up will include:
5th Street Rush Mission Impossible 4 June 6
Late Night, Date Night: The Vow June 13
Dancing on 5th Street Footloose June 20
Family Night Happy Feet 2 June 27
Additional Entertainment Each Week
This year with the themed weeks, additional entertainment and delicious movie treats will be provided before each of the screenings geared towards the weekly theme. For example, students may test their climbing skills as they scale a rock climbing wall for 5th Street Rush. Couples may enjoy a romantic night with a basket full of goodies (red popocorn? Hersey kisses?) during Late Night, Date Night.
Street dancing is planned for Dancing on 5th Street. Students can show off their best moves while dancing to live music for Dancing on 5th Street and, last but not least, plans are for balloon artists, face painting and just plain quality fun time with friends and family during Family Night.
