The name of this event is OUTDOOR FILM SCREENINGS. It was raining on the day of this event and instead of postponing it since it could no longer be outside they moved the event inside which completely defeats the purpose of even buying this deal. I completely regret it. When I called them to see if I could change the date they said I couldn't and I should just try to sell my ticket to someone else, they were not helpful and rather rude.

I enjoyed the idea of the event. You were able to see the a decent film with some amazing art the school had to offer. My only con on this was the tight seating. Definitely bring your own chair or a blanket to sit on.

It was a great experience. The day was perfect for a rooftop screening! I loved the venue (although didn't like climbing up all those stairs), live band was good, film was good and it was great to have the Director of the film and the main actress there to respond to questions. I thought it was a nice touch to have the free drinks at another venue afterwards (although, I didn't take advantage of that).

It rained, but I still love the event. I recommend bringing a blanket or two and showing up early to get good seats. My only complaint was that the sound was a little too high the entire show, and really too loud at cerain points. Its a great concept and the movie was very interesting.
