The Cabinet hosted a free movie night at the at the Paramount on Nov. 30.
Scheduling events and activities for students, the Cabinet uses funds pulled from an activity fee that is part of students’ tuition.
In tribute to the Christmas season, the movie The Santa Clause was shown. The Christmas movie was first released in 1994 and is a childhood classic for many college students.
The event had a sizable turnout, with almost the entire bottom floor of the building packed with students. Before the movie, there was a table set up where attendees could choose a free pair of Christmas patterned socks.
Christian Brooke, sophomore communications major from Dallas, attended the movie with a few of his peers.
“Honestly, I’m really glad I went,” Brooke said. “I got the opportunity to spend time with friends and re-experience a fun childhood movie that I hadn’t seen in a long time.”
Free popcorn and water bottles were provided with the movie.
Madelyn Moore, sophomore youth and family ministries major from San Antonio, said she enjoyed the event and looks forward to more Paramount showings in the future.
Moore said the timing of the movie was important, not just for the holiday season, but for those looking for relief from the upcoming stress of finals.
“I love Christmas movies and I love the Paramount, so I was super excited,” Moore said.
