The Memorial Union Building, commonly known as the MUB, here at the University of New Hampshire has a lot to offer. There is a food court called Union Court, a game room with pool tables and video games, as well as a lot of space for students to study. It’s also attached to Holloway Commons, which is one of three dining halls at UNH. On top of all these wonderful amenities, UNH also provides it’s students with two movie theaters! It’s an inexpensive, fun and safe campus activity for students. MUB theater 1 can fit 114 people, and MUB theater 2 can fit 200. Both are air conditioned, so make sure to bring a sweater!
The movie theaters are located on the third floor of the MUB and are generally run with the Memorial Union Student Organization, popularly known as MUSO. According to the MUB website, a mission of MUSO is “…to provide the student body with blockbuster movies showing within the confines of the MUB.” Thursday through Sunday, students have the option of watching a blockbuster movie for $4.00 with their student ID, and if they want to bring a friend who is visiting it’s only $6.00. A price you certainly can’t find at any given theater elsewhere in the entire seacoast! You can look at the MUB movie screenings for months down the road online, which is a great option for students who like to plan their weekends out. This year, there are plans of showing movies such as 22 Jump Street to Divergent to The Purge: Anarchy, and many others.
This weekend the MUB will be showing Edge of Tomorrow – 3D and Maleficent. Both these movies did well in theaters and offer completely different story lines, so no matter your taste, you will most likely enjoy at least – if not both – of these new movies. Not to mention, both movies headline two major stars – Tom Cruise in Edge of Tomorrow and Angelina Jolie in Maleficent. Edge of Tomorrow is a story about Lt. Col. Bill Cage who has never been to combat before, but then is thrown into a dangerous mission. On the other end of the spectrum, Maleficent is the untold story of the villain from Disney’s Sleeping Beauty. Both are thrilling tales, with completely different story lines.
If these movies aren’t for you, there are always new and exciting movies being show in the MUB so makes sure to check them out weekly. Going to the movies is a fun and safe option for you and your friends – and very affordable! MUB Movies are just one of many fun things to do on campus and in the MUB.
Tickets go on sale 1 hour before showtime and the MUB takes – cash, Cat’s Cache, Master Card & Visa. All advertised movie screenings are open to the general public – age rating restrictions apply.
