San Antonio, Texas: Outdoor Movie Series Starts with Star Trek

Star Trek kicks off the fall series of free outdoor movies sponsored by the office of student life at San Antonio College. The first Friday Night Movie, a monthly event that seeks to bring about a relaxed atmosphere where students and the community can share some movie magic, is set for 7:20 p.m. Sept. 25 in the mall. The movie screening is free for students with district ID; others may attend for $1 or a donation of one can of food for this college's Food Pantry. Viewers may bring their own chairs. Previous turnout for the outdoor movies has been estimated at 300 to 600 people at each movie, said Aaron Tavitas, assistant coordinator of student activities. The event is a way to bring the student body and community together to enjoy themselves, he said. Food provided by various student clubs, such as Teaching Academy Program Peers, American Institute of Architecture Students and the Psychology Club, will be sold during the movie. Star Trek, which is the most recent of the official Star Trek canon of movies, is rated PG-13 and runs approximately 127 minutes. Friday Night Movies scheduled for October and November are Up and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
