Movie Mondays

Mondays | 4:00–5:30PM

Want to meet new people and connect by watching/discussing movies? Come watch with us Monday afternoons this semester! Prior experience is not required!

Why Movies?

  • Connecting with characters, plots, and themes can have therapeutic properties.
  • Discussing topics around a movie watched with peers can boost a sense of connection to others and help develop some interpersonal skills.
  • Movies can be a great source of stress relief and can boost the release of endorphins, the body’s natural “feel good” chemicals.
  • Movies and discussions around a movie take the pressure off of having to "come up" with topics while learning to connect with others.
