Screen on the Green II: Napoleon Dynamite

submitted by kafox on Friday, April 8 at 1:40 AM

Napoleon Dynamite Outdoor movie on Harris Field (Witherspoon) this Monday, April 11th. This is an outdoor movie, so bring a blanket. There will be a cook-out with hot dogs and hamburgers starting at 6:00pm, the movie will start just after 7:30, when it gets dark enough. As usual, free to all NCSU students and brought to you by the UAB's Leisure and Entertainment Committee.

It irritates me that the UAB spends thousands of dollars on outdoor movies and hotdogs and such to give away, when the movie could just as easily be shown at Witherspoon for a $1 admission and just give away a hot dog with each ticket - it'd save a lot of money and irritation

^^
Substantiate that argument. Don't talk shit unless you have numbers to back it up with. "Thousands of dollars" is really close to "millions of dollars" and even closer to "billions of dollars".

(Btw, I'm not saying I disagree with you, I'm saying substantiate your argument).

I'm just figuring that they have to pay a few hundred for the right to show the movie, then if 100 people each eat a hot dog at a total cost of $1 each (dog, condiments, buns, non-reusable plates and stuff to cook em with, etc.) it's safe to assume $500 each show, then they do this 2-3 times per year ... times however many years you want to go back; in 4 years, they've spent $6000 on that alone. Yes, these are estimates (I've pulled from experience).

Show it in the theater, charge admission, just give away the drinks/food ... that way at least it pays for itself.

I've gone to ONE UAB event in my term here, and it was lame. I really don't support it to begin with, but in the interest of other students it needs to be run by people who have an idea of how to make the events pay for themselves to maximize the budget. Showing a movie few people have ever heard of for free and bribing people with food to show up is not my idea of a good use of funds.

I'll save the rest for the soapbox.
