Wonder Woman is lassoing her way to Hillsdale College at 8 p.m. on Thursday for the Student Activities Office’s first-ever Movie on the Quad event.
The screen-on-the-green cinematic experience of the summer blockbuster, which is not available on DVD until Sept. 19, is putting student activities’ new blow-up projector screen to use.
“We like that it is flexible and can be used to show movies and tailgates,” Student Activities Director Ashlynn Landherr said. “We do a lot of weekday stuff in the spring, so we wanted to do more of that this semester.”
The office put the screen to use for the first time on Aug. 26 when it showed the mixed martial arts fight between world champion Floyd Mayweather and United Fighting Championship star Conor McGregor.
The student activities office purchased the licensing to show the film. Landherr said she chose “Wonder Woman” because she thought a superhero movie with a female lead would interest both men and women.
Landherr encouraged students to grab a blanket and a friend and come to the Quad to enjoy the movie and free popcorn and candy.
