Cheap Date: New Movie Releases, Old Favorites

KNOXVILLE — Going to the movies can be an expensive date when you add up tickets, popcorn and drinks. It’s much cheaper if you see a movie at the University of Tennessee.

The UT Film Committee selects movies from new releases to classics and offers them for discounted admission to UT students, faculty and staff and to the community.

Most tickets are $1 for UT students, faculty and staff, and $2 for people outside the university. Popcorn costs 35 cents.

Most films are shown on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings in the University Center Auditorium.

Here is the fall schedule:

• Friday, Sept. 21, “Knocked Up,” 7 p.m., UC Auditorium

• Friday, Oct. 5, “Ocean’s 13,” 10 p.m., UC Auditorium

• Saturday, Oct. 20, “1408,” 7 p.m., UC Auditorium

• Friday, Oct. 26, “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” 11:59 p.m., UC Ballroom

• Sunday, Nov. 4, Student Film Festival, 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., UC Auditorium

• Friday, Nov. 16, “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix,” 7 p.m., UC Auditorium

• Friday, Nov. 30, The Bourne Ultimatum, 7 p.m., UC Auditorium

“The Rocky Horror Picture Show” and the Student Film Festival are free for UT students.

The Film Committee is comprised of students and is a member of the Central Program Council, a branch of the Office of Student Activities and the main source for programming on the UT campus.
