Despite a cold front that caused temperatures to drop into the 50s, students bundled up and made their way to the new Dedman Center for Lifetime Sports Thursday to see “Batman Begins” as part of Program Council’s October Movie Series. The film was projected onto a big screen outside of the indoor swimming pool area.

Though PC’s Thursday night movies are usually shown in the Hughes-Trigg Student Center Theatre, film chair Jennifer Pace said the change of location was made to highlight the newest addition to campus architecture.

“We wanted to get everybody to come to the new Dedman Center and add some fun to the event,” she said.

Pace felt the cold temperatures did not play too big of a role in the event’s attendance.

“I’m excited about the turnout,” she said. “It’s a cold night, and I think people want to get out and enjoy it.”

Junior Kristina Brown, PC’s vice president of communications, said switching the movie’s location from Hughes-Trigg to the Dedman Center took an increased amount of campus advertising.

“Word of mouth is always the biggest thing,” she said, “but we also used a Facebook party invitation and advertised in different newsletters around campus.”

Next Thursday, the October Movie Series will continue when PC shows “Ghostbusters” in the Hughes-Trigg Theatre. On Oct. 20, “Saw” will be shown in Letterman Hall, where a haunted house will also be held.

All movies start at 8 p.m., and admission is free.
