All films are shown in the THX-certified Browning Cinema at the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center on campus.

Tickets for all films are $7 general admission, $6 faculty/staff, $5 senior citizens, and $4 all students. To purchase tickets, contact the box office at 574-631-2800 or visit performingarts.nd.edu.
