Check with Student Activities regarding copyright issues. They will have the answers for you and are quick at responding. You can also just stop by instead of emailing to get a faster response.
After talking with Dr. Schueller, we think that 103 (this is a larger room), 337, 338 or even 222 (smaller) would work. We can do a test for sound. I believe all these rooms have sound.
Also, check to see why the ACM is not listed as a student organization. When I checked, I didn’t see it listed.

Subject: Movie night
Dr. Sharif (and ysu-acm list):
One idea thrown around at the first meeting a few weeks ago was to have a YSU-ACM sponsored movie night once or twice a semester. This would raise awareness of YSU-ACM and could also be used as a fundraiser (we could charge a small cover fee, or even just ask for a small donation from able-students).
My questions to you and the list are:
- When would be the best time to do something like this? I'm thinking maybe once before Thanksgiving break and again two-ish weeks before finals to give students a break from worrying about finals?
- Suggestions on movies? Something tech/CS related.
- Do we have to worry about copyright related things by showing something?
- Do we have to get approval from someone?
- Where could we show it?
- Other thoughts?
I really liked this idea - I think it's a great way to get our name out there a bit and do something fun.
I/we could buy a few big bags of popcorn and a few two-liters and people could snack while watching.
