UPB to show 'Breakfast at Tiffany's'

University Program Board will be sponsoring its first-ever "Movie Cafe" at 8 p.m. tonight in the Student Center Ballroom.

"Breakfast at Tiffany's" will be shown on BluRay to an audience of about 150 students, according to a campus e-mail.

Truffles, tarts and cookies will be served, along with Starbucks coffee and hot cider. University Catering is supplying the snacks, which will be free to students.

UPB president Dillon Kimmel said the event was inspired by a "dinner theater" concept. Survey responses from students have shown they want a more immersive experience from Friday Night Filmworks.

To make this happen, the Ballroom will be decorated in a semi-formal atmosphere and students are encouraged to dress similarly.

"We think this is a really good date idea," Kimmel said.

Kimmel also said UPB is open to planning more similar events if this one is a success.

The event starts at 8 p.m., but doors will open at 7:15 p.m. John Tyler Speer, program director for UPB, suggested that students show up early to make sure they get a seat.

Attendance is free with a Ball State student ID.
