Hosted by the Student Union Board and funded by Student Government and the Inter-Residence Hall Association, every semester Cyclone Cinema brings to campus feature films released in theaters in the last six months.

Director of student activities George Micalone said Cyclone Cinema welcomed more than 24,000 patrons last year, with Friday nights typically capturing the largest crowds.


The film captioning feature is regularly turned on for the Sunday showings, but can be turned on for any showing. Micalone said the request simply needs to be made before the film begins.


Cyclone Cinema's concession stand features Ankeny's Brandmeyer popcorn and candy selections ($2), and bottled Coca-Cola products and water ($1).
