The Cabinet reserved a Cinemark XD theater for the opening night of “Avengers: Endgame” at 10 p.m. on April 25.
This is the second time they have hosted an event at the theater, as the Cabinet hosted a movie event for “Avengers: Infinity War” last year.
The CAB has planned other events involving movies – they had a showing of Elf at the Paramount Theatre in December.
Only 100 tickets are available, which include free popcorn and drinks.
Students can win tickets through clues from a scavenger hunt on the Cabinet’s Instagram story. Clues will be posted on random days as to where CAB members will be on campus. Each day, students that locate these members first will win tickets.
Garrison Powell, a senior biochemistry major from Hallettsville, said students are excited that the CAB is planning this event again.
“With the event coming up people were asking, is the cabinet doing this again I really enjoyed it last year,” Powell said. “I think people are really excited for us to do it again and it’s going to have a good turnout.”
Powell said that reserving the tickets for the movie was relatively easy.
“I did it all online- there was a form you could submit when you want to see it, what movie do you want showing and what time,” Powell said.
Powell said Cinemark responded quickly to help move things along when finalizing the details.
“I submitted the form and probably within a day or two, I had the guy emailing me ready to get the contract going,” Powell said.
Powell said it was an easy decision to revive the event again this year.
“Being on the Cabinet last year, I knew it was a great event and had great success,” Powell said. “When it came time for picking events and people were anticipating us doing another one, I was just like ‘let’s do the Avengers movie, because it was a great hit last year.’”
Jamie Warren, senior business management major from Boerne, said she loved creating the upcoming event.
“I love it. It’s something really popular on campus, so it’s really fun getting to help in the process of making memories,” Warren said.
