Cyclone Cinema fall season opens tonight

You'll see your share of superheroes in this fall's edition of the Student Union Board's Cyclone Cinema. The feature film series opens tonight with two showings of Captain America: The Winter Soldier (7 and 10 p.m., Carver Hall auditorium). The fall lineup includes three other Marvel comics characters: Spiderman, the X-Men and Transformers; as well as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Prepare for action, dude!

Cyclone Cinema

Each week, the film series offers eight showings of one title over four nights, Thursday through Sunday. The 'oldest' film was released in theaters in April; the most recent hits theaters in mid-September -- and then the Cyclone screen on Dec. 4. (An 11th-hour substitution, the original Ice Age animated feature from 2002, is the exception.) Films start on time, so plan accordingly.

The public is welcome and admission is free -- but bring a few dollars for treats. Popcorn (kettle or buttered) and candy are $2; bottled soda and water are $1.
