Verbum Dei High School’s Associated Student Body is hosting a Movie Night, on February 15, 2019, in the gym, from 6:00 to 10:00 P.M. Admission for the event is $5, and students and their guests are encouraged to bring blankets and pillows.
ASB is allowing VDHS clubs the opportunity to participate through selling snacks and drinks during the event.
“ASB is going to take care of the admission and the popcorn,” Maribel Andrade, ASB moderator, said. “We’re just asking that other clubs, if they’re willing, sell other things.”
“This is going to give clubs the opportunity to sell something and make money for whatever it is that they are trying to accomplish, like field trips or food during club meetings,” said Andrade.
“I am going to send out a survey to students regarding the movie that we should show on movie night; one idea was Creed, but we want to be open to more suggestions,” said Andrade.
“I think that it is good that there is an opportunity for other clubs,” said Fr. George Teodoro, SJ, Anime Club moderator. “I think the movie night will be ultimately good for Anime Club. It’s a lot cheaper than going to AMC theaters, and it’s a way to get students out of the house to do something which isn’t too expensive.”
The gym’s recently installed video projector and state of the art sound system will be utilized for the event. Provisions for the mounting of a projection screen on the gym’s exterior were made last year for Movie Nights to be scheduled during the warmer weather of fall and spring.
