Grab your blankets — and maybe a sweater — and get ready for a night under the stars.
Ryerson Student Life (RUSL) will be hosting “Movie Under the Stars” in the Kerr Hall Quad this Thursday. Free popcorn, hot chocolate and coffee will be distributed, and there are even prizes!
“The outdoor movie night is something that we’ve done for several years for orientation, and it is always well received. After speaking to several students at Ryerson, there is always an interest in fun, large-scale events on campus,” says Andrew Bisnauth, the orientation-and-events specialist for RUSL programs.
The feature film is The Fault in Our Stars, and will begin at 9:30 p.m.
The movie was chosen based on a poll created through the Ryerson Student Life’s Twitter page (@RUStudentLife). Students were asked to choose between The Lego Movie, The Edge of Tomorrow, The Fault in Our Stars, Transformers: Age of Extinction and Godzilla. According to Bismauth, The Fault in our Stars won with almost 50 per cent of the vote.
The film was released in June 2014 and stars Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort. Based on a novel by John Green, The Fault in Our Stars tells the story of two teenagers who meet at a cancer support group and fall in love.
An expected 250 students will be at Thursday’s event.
If it happens to rain or if it’s too cold for people to sit outside, the movie night will be moved to LIB72. Students are encouraged to check RUSL’s website and Twitter page for updates.
