On Thursday, February 20th, PSC’s main campus student center offered a free mini movie theater experience to students, complete with free drinks, popcorn, and snacks.
Students settled down at tables and couches in front of a huge projector screen, to watch “Catching Fire”— a film adaption of the second book in Suzanne’s Collins “Hunger Games” series.
“Catching Fire” continues the story of Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark, teenagers from District 12 of the country Panem, in the wake of their victory at the deadly Hunger Games competition.
The movie follows their journey to the 75th Hunger Games, as the Capitol calls all previous winners back to the arena to fight to the death, in an attempt to kill off all traces of rebellion and the victors in one blow.
“It was really good, and close to how the book was,” movie attendee Brianna Methvin commented on the movie. She said that she would like PSC to keep showing such action movies, along with romantic comedies and the third installment of the Hunger Games movie series.
Her mother, Kathy Methvin, added that she likes it when PSC shows movies right before they come out on DVD.
The movie was hosted by the Student Government Association. According to David Darago, SGA vice-president, the movies will be shown every third Thursday of each month.
The next movie showing will be “Thor: The Dark World”, at 6:00 PM on Thursday, February 27th, at building 3600 of the Warrington Campus.
