UT Holds ‘Bike-In Movie’ to Promote Sustainability on Campus

 

Make Orange GreenIn celebration of Earth Month, an outdoor screening of the movie Wall-E will take place at 8:00 p.m., Thursday, April 19, at the Humanities Plaza outdoor amphitheater at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

This all-ages event combines the beloved pastime of drive-in movie theaters with a cleaner, more environmentally friendly vehicle: the bicycle. Walkers are welcome, too.

The under-the-stars movie screening will feature complimentary food and beverages, free bike tune-ups, and raffle prizes.

The Bike-in Movie is sponsored by ARAMARK, WUTK 90.3 The Rock, the United Residence Halls Council, the UT Outdoor Program, the UT Film Committee, and the Office of Sustainability.

Now in its sixth year on campus, Earth Month promotes environmental awareness, conservation, and sustainable practices to the campus community.
