Coming up this week is SCOPE’s annual celebration of all things movies, Film Week.

This year’s theme is superheroes. Many of the events are basic showings of film. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday are screenings of Spiderman 2, Captain America, Iron-Man, and Spectre.

Each night will have free food from catering, providing a dinner to those who are tired of dining hall food. At the end of each film, a novelty piece of merchandise will be given away as well as the film screened itself.
Tuesday is Film Jeopardy in the Bartels Programming Space, in which you can come and see if you’re a movie buff.

Friday is a Star Wars Party. Make your own lightsaber, have a Cantina mock tail, and play some Star Wars video games and trivia. Free food and prizes will be at these events as well.

Sunday will end with the annual Oscar Party, in which the Communication Club will cosponsor with SCOPE to host a screening of the ceremony, accompanied by a plethora of gourmet foods and drinks. Attendees can predict the winners in each category, and the top scorer will get to pick out their very favorite Blu-Ray boxset movie collections. The event is not black tie, but feel free to come dressed for the event.

For every event during Film Week, attendees will receive a giveaway ticket to be drawn at the end of the week after the conclusion of the Oscar Party. These tickets will be for either a Fitbit watch, an iPad mini, or a Pebble smart watch. The more Film Week events you go to, the better your chances are to win these awesome prizes.

Now one might think, “why come and watch a two plus year old movie when you can watch it from your dorm.” Well, watching films communally is always beneficial. By sitting in a room with others, a shared experience is created, which sparks conversation and adds value to an experience. The films are also always better on a bigger screen, and the screens SCOPE is projecting on is certainly bigger than an average laptop.   This will create a more enveloping experience for all. The free food and prizes are also great added benefits.
