Cyclone Cinema announces fall titles

If you question the popularity of Hollywood sequels and remakes, take a gander at Cyclone Cinema's fall lineup. Eight of the 14 titles either end in a numeral, are part of a franchise or retell a previously told story. The film series opens next week (Aug. 29) with Star Trek Into Darkness and wraps up the first weekend in December with the recently released Elysium.

Cyclone Cinema

Cyclone Cinema, sponsored by the Student Union Board with funding from Government of the Student Body, will show a wide variety of feature films released since May. Each movie runs for a weekend (Thursday through Sunday nights), with two showings a night (7 and 10 p.m.) in 101 Carver. Admission is free and the public is welcome.

But you may want to bring a few dollars for treats. Bottled water and Coca-Cola products are $1; candy and Ankeny-based Brandmeyer popcorn cost $2. You may pay with cash or CyCash at the concession stand. ISU students also may use their Dining Dollars.
