Watching Netflix alone in your summer housing just not cutting it for you? As sad as it may seem, you are probably not alone. But do not fret, because Wesleyan’s film geeks don’t rest, not even during the summer! Emily Brown ’12 writes in with pretty much the only game in town to fill up those empty Tuesday nights (and it’s a pretty good one, too):

That’s right kids. The Summer Film Series is back on July 9th with Some Like It Hot. If you’ve never seen this film, make sure you get your body to the Center for Film Studies. This film will be introduced by Ed Herrmann (also known as Richard Gilmore to those of us who grew up wishing we lived in Stars Hollow) and will start at 7:30.

Date: Tuesday, July 9th, 2013
Time: 7:30 PM
Place: Center for Film Studies
