Reinhardt’s Anime Club invites students to sing along with their favorite Disney songs.

This Friday evening at 6 p.m the Reinhardt student body is invited to cast off the stress of the school week and unwind with songs from their favorite Disney movies.

“I wanted to do an event that everyone could come to, because not everyone watches anime but everyone loves Disney” said event runner Cassie Strickland. Attendees are not expected to bring anything besides their singing voice for this event.

The event is set to run through 8 p.m in the Bannister Glasshouse and is open to all students at no cost.

The Student Activities Council is putting on an Eagle Cinema event, which will be a showing of the movie Loving, this Saturday, Feb. 11.  The movie will be shown at the Bannister Glasshouse in the Student Life Center at 9 p.m.  Popcorn and tissues will be provided.

Loving is about an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving, who fell in love and married in 1958,” Coordinator of Programming and Service at the Office of Student Activities, Meredith Keating said.  “They grew up in Central Point, a small town in Virginia that was more integrated than surrounding areas in the American South. Yet, it was the state of Virginia, where they were making their home and starting a family, that first jailed and then banished them. Richard and Mildred then relocate with their children to the inner city of Washington, D.C., but the family ultimately tries to find a way back to Virginia.”

Keating believes that the move night will provide a great time for all.

“Attending a Student Activities Council Eagle Cinema event is a great, low pressure way to meet new people,” said Keating.  “It’s also really comfy to curl up in one of the Glasshouse chairs and watch a movie on a blow-up screen.”

Sophomore psychology/English major and event leader, Ally Vieira, also encourages students to come out and join the fun.

“It’s a great interracial love story that really accentuates what we are trying to remember during Black History Month and a big part of what Americans fought for,” said Vieira.  “Plus, there will be tons of movie theater popcorn to go around, so come to the Glasshouse and enjoy!”

Suggestions for future events can be emailed to studentactivitiescouncil@reinhardt.edu.

An Excuse to Laugh is set to resume its improv performances this week. Held in the Bannister Glasshouse on a weekly basis, the troupe entertains students, faculty, staff and visitors alike with free shows every Thursday night. Starting at 10 p.m., the performances typically consist of a variety of games and scenes acted out by the troupe for approximately an hour each week.

This season, An Excuse to Laugh sports an expanded line up of fifteen performers consisting of new and old talent. Along with these new additions come new games and styles keeping each show fresh and unique. “Everyone should come because we are what our title says, an excuse to laugh and relieve some stress from the school or work week.” Said An Excuse to Laugh’s current leader Nick Cothran. In addition to the brand of humor the Reinhardt community comes to expect from the troupe, “There are a few surprises we have in store this semester!” said Cothran.

Unless otherwise announced, the shows will be held every week except for breaks and holidays. Those in attendance should try to arrive a few minutes beforehand to assure preferred seating arrangements as well as be prepared to offer prompts to the performers or to otherwise participate.
