The Green Action Campus Plan (GCAP) together with R’Garden will be hosting free fall movie nights starting October 8, at 7 p.m. in the campus’ community garden. The series promises to showcase films that are “a mix of kid friendly movies and documentaries with themes of sustainability and food.”
The first movie to be shown is the French-Italian animated movie “Mia and the Migoo,” which is about how a young girl’s journey to find her father in a tropical paradise is threatened by the construction of a giant hotel resort. This event is free and free parking will be available in Lot 30. Goodwin’s Organic Foods and Drinks will sell popcorn, wraps and drinks for attendees of the event via food truck.
Jackie Perez, a graduate student in UCR’s School of Education, will attend the event because she believes that “It’s a good event to bring the community together outside of an academic environment and it represents UCR’s strong stance on sustainability.”
