UTEP’s popular outdoor film series is getting a limited fall run.

Movies on the Lawn returns to the university's Centennial Plaza for a three movie engagement consisting of Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and Finding Dory.

Ferris and The Force were originally scheduled to be shown in June but had to be cancelled due to inclement weather.

Movies on the Lawn are shown outdoors on an 18-foot inflatable screen. They are free to attend and open to everyone, not just UTEP students.
