Free burrito day at Chipotle; Eddy Street Commons; 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Free
Finally! Although it doesn’t officially open until Friday, the new Chipotle will be giving out free food all day Thursday. Conveniently located just across the street from the south edge of campus, the restaurant is one of the first attractions to open in Eddy Street Commons, and sure to be a student hotspot soon enough. Chipotle will give a free burrito and soft drink to all customers on Thursday before beginning regular business hours (and full menus) on Friday.
Tokyo String Quartet; DeBartolo Performing Arts Center; Leighton Concert Hall; 7 p.m.

Formed in 1969 at Juilliard, the Tokyo String Quartet has traveled the world for its performances and earned dozens of awards, including seven Grammy nominations. The Quartet is celebrating its 40th anniversary, although only one of the founding members (Kazuhide Isomura, who plays viola) still performs with the group. He and the other musicians (Martin Beaver and Kikuei Ikeda with violin and Clive Greensmith with cello) all use instruments crafted by the famous Stradivari in the 1700s.
Sub Movie – The Hangover; DeBartolo 101; 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. (also 10 p.m. Thursday and 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. Friday)
$3 all students
This surprise hit of the summer is full of gross gags and wacky humor. Ed Helms, Zach Galifianakis and Bradley Cooper play three friends who get so wasted one night at a Las Vegas bachelor party that they wake up the next morning with hospital bracelets, a police cruiser, a tiger in the bathroom, a baby in the closet – and the groom (played by Justin Bartha) nowhere to be found. The cast is great together, with jokes just raunchy enough to elicit laughs.
Psycho (1960); DeBartolo Performing Arts Center; Browning Cinema; 3:00 p.m.
$6 general public, $5 faculty/staff, $4 seniors and $3 all students
This classic by Alfred Hitchcock, about a mild-mannered motel manager who just happens to murder people, is considered the prototype for the modern horror film, and with good reason. The black-and-white film has inspired dozens of rip-offs and tokens of homage. One of them, the shot-by-shot 1998 remake by Gus Van Sant (starring Notre Dame man Vince Vaughn), can also be seen Saturday night as part of the DPAC’s weekend celebration of Hitchcock.
