Free Movies at The Bridge

On Thursday, November 7, The Bridge: Cinema de Lux, will open its doors exclusively to local college students for Penn Picks Movie Day. The event, co-sponsored by S.P.E.C. (Social Planning and Events Committee), will offer students the opportunity to see up to six classic films free just by showing their college ID.

Plus, everyone at the event will have the chance to win one of 15 MTV 1000 Singing Machines®, a portable CD with graphics karaoke system that hooks up to any television. The unit is compact and fits easily into tote bags and backpacks, making it a portable party accessory.
