University of New Hampshire (UNH) Dining, Memorial Union and the Campus Activities Board (CAB) are now offering dinner in the dining hall and a movie in the Memorial Union Building (MUB) for $15 for the general public, students and UNH faculty and staff.
Executive Director of Hospitality Services Bill McNamara came up with the idea.
“It’s a nice way to attract the local community and staff to discover more of UNH as well as an affordable, convenient option for our students,” McNamara said.
Movies play throughout the semester on the third floor in the MUB in two different theaters. Some of the movies playing later this semester include “Uncut Gems” and “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.” The current movie being played is “Frozen 2,” which is available until Saturday, March 7. Tickets are available to purchase at the MUB Ticket Office 30 minutes before the show starts or you can get tickets online at any time, and movies play Wednesday through Sunday.
“The intent is to offer the deal throughout the year that coincides with dining hall hours of operations,” Director of Dining Hall Operations David Hill said. Hill also explained that the offer is currently in effect and is available “anytime there is a movie shown that coincides with a dining hall being open.” There may be exceptions during winter break or in the summer.
Dinner at the dining hall would normally cost an adult without a meal plan $15 at the door and another $6 to see a movie (including faculty and staff). With this offer, the movie will be free if you eat at one of the dining halls.
The offer is open to any of the three dining halls, but the best option is to dine at Holloway Commons because it is connected to the MUB.
