For the past five years, starting with the Twilight series, Campus Life hosted a movie premiere night. This year, the movie will be the third sequel in the Hunger Games trilogy, MockingJay part one, held on Nov. 20 at B&B theatres in Neosho.”All proceeds from the ticket sales go to The Giving Tree, which is our Christmas event where we adopt families, or students who are in need, to make their Christmas a little better,” said Mark Aubuchon, campus life coordinator.

Tickets will be soldthe day of the premiere and in advance. Tickets will be available for students at the other campuses. VIP seats are $10 the rest of the seats, while general admission tickets are $5. Both VIP and general seating can be bought daily from noon till 1 p.m. in the student center.

At each movie premiere, the tickets have sold out, and the same results are expected this year. Campus Life will be renting out a whole screening room in order for Crowder students to be one of the first to watch MockingJay.

“I went last year, and the turnout of the event was big. A lot of Crowder students went and saw the movie. Hopefully, they do this event for the next part of the Hunger Games movies,” said Desiree Aceves.

The doors open at 7p.m., and the movie begins at 8 p.m.. According to Aubuchon, with reserved seating, being early is not necessary, but without them, it is recommended to be there at seven in order to ensure that the tickets have not sold out yet.

In years past there have been pre-events before the showing of the movie.

“We haven’t decided what we are going to do yet,” Aubuchon stated. “We may show the other two movies earlier in the week in the evening for students who haven’t watched them yet, but we haven’t made official plans for that yet.”
