Jurassic Park

*Live Podcast Recording*

1993 became an epic year when this movie entered our worlds. I think it made a lasting impact on people, especially since it holds a spot in the Top 500 movies on IMDb, and won 3 Oscars. Not only that, but dinosaur fever is still rampant in Hollywood with Jurassic World in theaters June 12. Come discuss (what we believe) is one of the best movies of our generation! If you have never seen the film, we would love to have you watch it before the panel and come join us as a new timer. We’d love to hear your perspective as someone new to the film.

Panelists:  Bri, Cassie, Diana, Megan

When: Friday 12:00pm – 1:00pm

*Live Podcast Recording*

Are you a fan of American Horror Story? Did you take part in our panel for AHS: Coven last year? Then you will love what we have in store for you this year. American Horror Story has a kind of ‘cult’ following, ever since Murder House aired in 2011, followed by Asylum, Coven and most recently, Freak Show. It’s great to see most of the same actors portray a variety of characters, including more than a few that are sick and twisted. This is a panel you won’t want to miss!

Hosts: Bri, Diana, Jonathan, Sara

When: Saturday 10:30am – 11:30am

Where: West 213B
