Events

Never a dull moment

With thousands of public events each year, the Indiana Memorial Union has something for everyone. Watch the latest Hollywood blockbuster in the Union Board Film series, or roller skate in Alumni Hall during Late Nite. Hear lectures on topics like sustainability and civil rights, or sample international cuisine at World’s Fare.

No matter what you’re looking for, you’re bound to find an event at the IMU that fits your interests, schedule, and budget. Check out our event calendar to see what’s happening next.

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.
