UWRF Theater

This is a picture of the new theater in the local university Student Center. I'm actually really impressed with it, the whole building is pretty nice, and i found out that one of my relatives by marriage helped build it. I went to see a collection of short amateur horror films there the weekend before Halloween, and it was quite fun. My personal favorites were Urine Trouble and There's a Werewolf in my Attic, both made by a guy from Wisconsin that i chatted with beforehand. Those two weren't really scary, but had a great sense of humor that had me laughing a lot. Before it began i talked with the teacher i took Hitchcock and Film from, and found out that even though this room is perfect for classes that deal in film, if the teachers want to use it they have to pay for renting it. You can't really see from this photo, but there are desks that flip out on the chairs, a very large nice screen and sound system, and a podium, in other words, perfect for film classes. The rooms the normal film classes are in are less than ideal to put it mildly, normal cinderblock room with the most uncomfortable desks and such. There are so many people i keep running into here that are doing a film, but there is no official film studies programs here that it confuses me.

Sorry about being absent here, things have been getting bad for people i know, so i haven't posted.
