Cyclone Cinema series opens this week

If your busy summer caused a few missed opportunities at the box office, Cyclone Cinema could help you catch up on some of the top spring and summer films. This fall's lineup features 14 films released between March and August.


Cyclone Cinema is a program of the Student Union Board, with funding provided by the Government of the Student Body. Films are shown in the Carver Hall auditorium. Admission is free and the public is welcome.

The series opens this week with eight showings of The Avengers, starring Robert Downey Jr. and Scarlett Johansson. Showtimes are 7 and 10 p.m. every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, except during Thanksgiving break (Nov. 17-25), when the film series also takes a break.

Films are free, but bring some cash

What's a feature film without Milk Duds? Cyclone Cinema's concession stand features popcorn ($2 and $3), boxed candy ($2), bottled water ($1) and Coca Cola products ($1). You may pay with cash or CyCash at the concession stand. ISU students also may use their Dining Dollars.
