UNC Greensboro and Greensboro Downtown Parks are teaming up to present the third annual Spartan Cinema, a free series of Friday night movie screenings with pre-movie activities and performances by UNCG students, faculty, and staff.

Spartan Cinema kicks off Friday, May 10, at LeBauer Park with box office hit “Crazy Rich Asians.” Many tassel-turning Spartans will have seen one of the film’s stars, Greensboro native Ken Jeong, speak at May Commencement earlier that day. Prior to the movie screening, UNCG’s International Programs Center will host a variety of games and give out free UNCG swag.

The series continues through the end of August, and all screenings take place at LeBauer Park in downtown Greensboro. The park lawn opens for seating at 5 p.m., and movies begin at sunset.

For more information about pre-movie programming, visit UNCG’s Facebook and Twitter each week.
