Austin Garcia, a Political science major and Outreach Officer for E.C.O.S. (Executive Council of Students) informed the Chronicle of some fun movie showings coming up.
E.C.O.S. is putting on two free movie nights one on March 8, 2019 and April 12,2019 along with costumes and prizes for all students, faculty, and their families to enjoy, he said.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, will be shown on Friday March 8that 7:00 pm inside of the Smith Brasher Auditorium on the main campus. Doors will open at 6:30 pm, he said.
“These events are important because they give community college students the chance to participate in extracurricular activities as well as providing exposure to not only E.C.O.S. but any clubs or student organizations interested in participating,” says Garcia.
The upcoming movie nights will be free to any student, staff, or faculty with a CNM I.D. as well as their families, he said.
Subtitles will also be enabled to accommodate deaf and hard of hearing attendees, he said.
Everyone attending is encouraged to dress up as their favorite Hogwarts house or character from the Harry Potter films because we are going to be holding a cosplay contest, and the two best cosplayers will receive prizes, he said.
Avengers: Infinity War will be showing on Friday April 12th on the SRC lawn if the weather permits, he said.
There will also be popcorn and refreshments offered on Avengers night, he said.
“These are fun activities where students can relax and not have to worry about all the stress that comes along with being a college student,” said Garcia.
