‘Mary Poppins Returns’ is UTEP Friday Night Flick
Friday night's UTEP Friday Night Flick is going to be supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.
The low-priced movie series continues March 8, 2019 with Disney's Mary Poppins Returns, an all new original musical and sequel starring Emily Blunt as your new, modern Mary Poppins. You can tell the character has been updated because in this one she has an affair with Ben Affleck.
Ha, just kidding! In this one, the magical nanny emerges from the sky to save the kids from diabetes after the previous nanny convinced them that a spoonful of sugar helped the medicine go down. Okay, full disclosure: I've never seen this or the previous Mary Poppins movie.
Tickets are $2 for UTEP students, faculty, staff and alumni (with valid miner gold card), $3 for the rest of us and can be purchased at any UTEP Ticket Center location.
Doors open at 6:00 p.m. with the movie starting promptly at 6:30 p.m. in the Union Cinema, located on the first floor of UTEP’s Union Building East.
Soft drinks and snacks will be available at the concession stand for a few bucks, including a $5 hotdog, popcorn and drink Movie Combo. Outside food and drink is not allowed.
