Union Board Films

You can catch the latest movies on the big screen without leaving campus—and without breaking the bank—thanks to Union Board Films, the country’s longest-running college film series. The series, which first began in 1909, shows first-run films every weekend in the IMU’s Whittenberger Auditorium.

Admission is free for students (with student ID) and $2 for nonstudents. The general public is welcome to attend.
