The outdoor screening of “Monsters University” is a success despite the technical difficulties
Last Friday, to celebrate the first week of classes, the Office of Community Life hosted a drive-through movie night at Church of Christ in Woodmont Hills. Despite some screening challenges during the film, the screening was an enjoyable and eventful evening for the students.
Lipscomb students had the opportunity to suggest ideas and then vote for the film to be screened .; Monster college was the chosen film.
As the students entered the parking lot, the Student Activity Board volunteers directed them to locations. Once installed, the students were able to grab a treat to eat during the movie at the snack table.
Since this movie is a prequel to Monsters Inc., the story of the meeting of the main characters, Mike and Sully, was greeted with laughter from the audience. Another first scene featuring a chaotic party has been likened to the Nordista Freeze performance Wednesday Night We Eat During Quest Week by the students.
Despite its G rating and young target audience, Monster college was the perfect film for the occasion. His messages of responding with determination and resilience to challenges can easily be motivating for students who have faced a difficult year of confusion and disappointment.
However, these themes are well balanced with the fun journey that the main characters, Mike and Sully, take to transform their college’s most incompetent fraternity into champions of the Scare Games, a multi-event competition designed to prove who is the best scary. . is.
Unfortunately, during the film’s climax, the screen generator ran out of gas, causing Monster college suddenly cut. SGA President Grant Hitchcock communicated the situation by switching quickly from car to car, explaining that a second generator would be operational soon. About 10 minutes after the first generator stopped, the second turned on the screen again and the movie ended successfully.
Despite the difficulty, the evening was received positively.
Freshman Mia Gratzer said: “I would say movie night was always a success because I had a lot of fun hanging out with people and relaxing.”
