Thursday, Oct. 15 marked the beginning of LSU’s Drive-In Movie Series.

The event is a collaboration between LSU Student Government, Campus Life, and the UREC. The series began with a showing of “Black Panther” Thursday night and will continue through the end of month.

Over 200 students headed to the UREC Field Complex and attended the first night of the event.

Student Government’s Director of Student Outreach Chandler Black says the event is an attempt to create more opportunities for safe social interactions.

“It’s been very socially anemic on campus,” Black said. “It's really giving students a great opportunity to do something, get out, enjoy themselves while also being safe at the same time.”

LSU junior Taylor Halsey was in attendance Thursday night and had nothing but good things to say about her experience.

“I thought everything went really smoothly,” Halsey said. “There was a really good turn out.”

Halsey also noted that she appreciated these organizations' attempt to bring students together while also maintaining distance.

“With everything going on with coronavirus and other restrictions, you know, we can't have a lot of in person events,” Halsey said, “but I thought it was a great idea that, you know, all the organizations that were involved had just to get everyone together and have a fun event for students.”

The Drive-In series continued on Oct. 19 with a showing of “Us” and will conclude on Oct. 30 with “It”.
