Students are welcome to head over to Braden Auditorium at 7 p.m. on Friday for Double Feature Friday (DFF) to get their fix of two recent animated box-office hits.
Made possible by University Program Board (UPB), “Monsters University” and “Despicable Me 2” will be played on ISU’s campus. “Monsters University” will make its debut at 7 p.m. in Braden followed by “Despicable Me 2” immediately after at 9 p.m.
An admission fee of $1 will allow students and the general public entrance into Braden to enjoy both films. Students are required to present their Redbird IDs.
This event will mark the second DFF hosted by UPB.
“The purpose of Double Feature Friday is to provide entertainment for students and the surrounding community and save them from the high price of going to a theater [while allowing] them to see the movies in between the time they are in theaters and on DVD or Blu-ray,” Ashley Yantis, UPB arts and entertainment chairperson, said.
Yantis also said she has heard positive feedback from people who know about DFF and plan to attend Friday’s event.
The UPB team started planning DFF last semester in March, Yantis said.
“We selected the movies in May based on their popularity because when we saw these on the list we thought they would be a great pair for the campus,” Yantis added.
UPB has utilized a variety of marketing strategies to promote DFF, including posters, yard signs and flyers.
On Monday, students had the opportunity to stop by Milner Plaza to create minion-themed cupcakes in honor of the upcoming feature at ISU, “Despicable Me 2.”
