Thursday: Get Him to the Greek

This week’s SUB movie is the hilarious follow-up to 2008’s “Forgetting Sarah Marshall.” In “Get Him to the Greek,” Russell Brand stars again as narcissistic musician Aldous Snow. An intern (Jonah Hill, also of “Sarah Marshall”) is hired to escort Snow from his home in England to the Greek Theater in Los Angeles. Ridiculous mishaps and general hilarity ensue in this summer hit. “Get Him to the Greek” is showing in DeBartolo 101 Thursday at 10 p.m. The film will also be shown Friday and Saturday at 8:30 and 10:30 p.m. Tickets are $3.
