Curious about how Night @ the Movies will work this Friday?

This semester we are trying something new which we hope will be easier and more fair for all students.

How do you get your movie ticket? It’s EASY! Just visit your student mailbox on Friday, April 29 – it will be inside your mailbox! No lines, no waiting, no rushing! Your ticket will be in your mailbox until Sunday evening. If you have not picked up your ticket by then, it will be removed and put into a pool of tickets for the next cycle.

We hope this new system will make it easier than ever to enjoy DSU Night @ the Movies!
