This Week on Screen and Stage
The State Theatre will be screening some critically-acclaimed films this week, while the Penn State School of Theatre presents “The Grand Hotel.”
The State Theatre
Tonight, for the hopeless romantics, Casablanca will be playing at 7 and 9:30 p.m. For only $5, you and that special someone can experience one of the greatest romance movies ever made (or you can go alone if that’s your thing). It will be less than half the price of going to see The Vow, and it won’t be a cheap imitation of The Notebook.
Wednesday and Thursday evenings at the State Theatre, you’ll be able to see the Oscar Nominated Live Action/Animation Short Films. The Live Action Shorts will be shown Wednesday at 4 p.m. and Thursday at 7 p.m. The Animation Shorts will be shown Wednesday at 7 p.m. and Thursday at 4 p.m. Both showcases cost $6 for students and include five separate works.
Starting Friday, the State Theatre will be screening The Iron Lady. This feature film, starring Meryl Streep as Margaret Thatcher, will be shown through February 23 and will only cost $6 for students.
Starting tonight, the Penn State School of Theatre will be performing The Grand Hotel, with a preview performance scheduled for 7:30 p.m. It will run through February 28 at the Pavilion Theatre (corner of Shortlidge and Curtin). Ticket prices vary, but student tickets can be purchased for $12 with a Penn State ID.
So go ahead, take a breather before THON, and head to the State Theatre or Pavilion Theatre for a show.
