The Mercyhurst Modern Cinema Club is organizing the premiere of the movie “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” on Thursday, November 10 at 6:00 pm at the Tinseltown Cinemark Theater.
The movie tickets are free for Mercyhurst students thanks to the Mercyhurst Student Government, which has been helping the club for a year by paying for the theater reservation each semester.
As this event is sponsored by the MSG, it gives students the perfect opportunity to leave campus and enjoy a free tour.
It’s also an amazing social event, said club adviser Dr. Kristofer Gossett: “We tend to be crowded at our premieres. Increasingly, theaters are organizing these events because of their popularity on campus. “
With all the responsibilities around your student life and school work, it can be fun to leave campus and chill out with your friends for the evening. It’s also a chance to save money and watch a new movie for free.
This club was formed in 2014 by Gossett and Dennis Arthur, who was a student at the time.
The goal was to share their love of movies with other students and invite them to spend a night of fun away from the dynamic environment on campus.
They gained recognition when they started staging exclusive premieres that were held only for Mercyhurst members.
These shows are local and available as they are held at Tinseltown Cinemark.
Additionally, they work with athletic staff and fleet operations to obtain charter buses to transport students to and from the theater.
Mercyhurst Modern Cinema Club traditionally coordinates one film premiere per semester. This was put on hold for a year and a half due to restrictions on personal events brought by COVID.
As COVID laws have been cut significantly, this has allowed more social occasions to resume.
Mercyhurst Modern Cinema Club plans to make the most of this opportunity to be together as it has many other ways to celebrate the film this semester.
Their on-campus events include curiosities, a grand Oscar party this spring, Christmas-themed film events, all in addition to a trip to new movie premieres.
They are also well known for their trips to Toronto for the International Film Festival each fall. Many students enjoy this trip as they are taking a lot of alumni.
In September of this year, 18 alumni or alumni friends / family accompanied the club to the 24 International Film Festival that took place.
If you are interested in club membership, you can contact Gossett at kgossett @ Mercyhurst.edu. However, you don’t need to be a club member to attend movie premieres.
