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.
