Movies on the Lawn

The tradition of Movies on the Lawn (MOTL) began in Fall 1991 when a student named Stacy Bruels suggested that the back wall of the Special Events Center be used to screen newly released films. Until 2009, a movie was shown every Wednesday at 9pm with popcorn, cotton candy, snow cones, nachos, a variety of candy and other treats given out to students.

Today, recently released movies are projected onto the Bookstore wall and played biweekly. 

All movies are shown on the MSC Bookstore lawn or Oval Theater at 9 p.m. In the event of inclement weather, an alternate location will be announced the day of the movie.
