Free movies to be shown by CAB

Prices at a movie theater can be a little high for always almost-broke college students, but campus movie buffs looking for a free cinematic fix can now enjoy the Campus Activities Board’s “Movie Tuesdays.”
Whether you’re looking to see an action-packed thriller, a romantic comedy, a horror flick or a drama on a budget, Campus Activities Board has you covered. Best of all, it is free.
For this semester CAB Coordinator Todd McElroy and his staff have selected 12 films ranging from the popular films of 2013 to the classics of the 1970s.
“We brought a group of students together and tried to come up with a diverse group of movies so we could hopefully appeal to every student, and they will at least have a couple in there they want to see,” said McElroy.
Best Picture Oscar winners like “The Godfather” and “Slumdog Millionaire” were selected, and the original Saw movie is thrown in for a little scare along with action packed blockbusters “Fast & Furious 6,” “300” and “Pitch Black” to round out the list.
Just in time for the new release of the new “Anchorman: The Legend Continues,” the group also chose the original “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” from 2004.
The locations will be in the Student Union Theatre for the 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. showings, then at night CAB will show the films either inside the theatre, or outside in front of the Pennington Center or drive-in style in the freshmen overflow parking lot on University Avenue.  Popcorn will be available, and students are encouraged to bring their own blankets and snacks. Again, there is no cost for admission.
The first film will be May’s blockbuster hit “Fast & Furious 6” on August 27 followed by the musical comedy “Pitch Perfect” on September 3.
