Thursday, September 3
“I Love You Man,” 12 a.m.; Legends
Looking for laughs? Legends has got you covered! Student stand-up comedy is at 10 p.m., and is guaranteed to provide delightfully off-colored jokes for your enjoyment. This is the time to stake out this year’s rising comedians with the first show of the year.
If that’s not enough for you, Legends is also screening “I Love You Man” at midnight. Starring Paul Rudd and Jason Segel, this film is a great bromance that everyone can enjoy. Both Rudd and Segel have received high praises for the movie.
Friday, September 4
Dillon Pep Rally; 5.45 p.m.; South Quad
It’s back! After the controversial hiatus of last year, the Dillon Pep Rally has returned to campus! This is the only pep rally on campus this Friday, and it is highly suggested that you attend. Comedy and school spirit combine for an instant win. Be there: 5:45 p.m. on the South Quad side of Dillon. Go Irish, beat Wolfpack!
Looking for something a little later in the evening? “The Brothers Bloom” is playing at DPAC at 9:30 p.m. This film tells the story of the con-pulling Bloom brothers (Adrien Brody and Mark Ruffalo) and their latest target, the rich heiress Penelope (Rachel Weisz). The dramedy received positive reviews overall. Tickets: $6, $5 faculty/staff, $4 seniors, $3 all students.
Saturday, September 5
Michael Jackson Tribute Night; 12 a.m.; Legends
So I don’t know if everyone’s heard, but the King of Pop died this summer. What are we going to do now? If you suddenly feel the inexplicable urge to dance and shout “Thriller!!! In the night!,” then Legends has got you covered Saturday at midnight with Michael Jackson Tribute night. This is the perfect opportunity to dance in celebration after the first win of the season! If it turns out to be otherwise, than you can mourn Michael Jackson and the performance of the football team all at the same time.
Sunday, September 6
“Afghan Star”; 3 p.m.; Browning Cinema at Debartolo Performing Arts Center
Don’t worry: Sunday’s weekends activities won’t interfere with Mass, I promise. “Afghan Star” is playing in the Browning Cinema at DPAC at 3 p.m. This film is a documentary about Afghanistan’s version of “American Idol” after the fall of the Taliban. The contestants for the show include three women. The show itself is an example of democracy for the people through voting for performers, and the effect it’s had on the culture there is noteworthy, as it displays the country’s struggle to achieve modernity. Tickets: $6, $5 faculty/staff, $4 seniors, $3 all students.
