As first semester and finals, came to an end, University Preparatory hosted a movie night on Thursday, December 19th. In addition to having a good time with their friends after a stressful week of finals some teachers offered a last minute opportunity to receive extra credit. The movie “Home Alone” is a classic Christmas movie that’s very popular during this time of year since it is about a boys adventures during Christmas time. Before the event started, there was a line of students waiting to get inside. Once the event began students hurried inside to find a seat. While some students were sitting waiting for the movie to begin, some were still outside buying their tickets, and some were in line at the snack bar. Once the movie began, most students were paying attention and watching the film, while some were talking and laughing with their friends. Sophomore Marcela Contreras noted, “Couples were watching the movie but friend groups weren’t.” There was a lot going on and lots of noise from students coming in and out of the MPR, sitting up and back down, and going back and forth to the snack bar. Despite the noise, there was a palpable sense of relief that finals had ended and students could enjoy themselves stress free, whether they watched the movie or not. It’s safe to say that movie night was successful and a good end to the first semester.
