Love going out for a movie but hate paying for expensive tickets and snacks?
Students who visited the Pensacola State College Student Center on the Pensacola campus this past Friday, Jan. 10, were happy to find out that the showing of Despicable Me 2 was completely free of charge. It even came with complementary popcorn and soda.
The early showing at 1 p.m. was a part of this semester’s Spirit Week. However, according to David Darago, vice-president of the Student Government Association, movies will now be played every third Thursday of the month at 6 p.m. in the Student Center, located in building 5 on the Pensacola campus.
The movies, selected by an inter-club council, are voted on with the intention of appealing to the diverse population of students attending PSC. Next month’s movie will be decided on Jan. 28.
“It’s a great way to encourage student involvement on campus,” Darago said.
When asked what she thought was good about showing free movies to students, student Tamika Teague commented, “It’s a good idea. I’m just killing time and staying out of trouble, keeping busy. I liked the movie a lot.”
Current PSC students can simply pick a seat and enjoy a movie with their friends or family without hurting their wallet.
