President Summers to present ‘It’s Movie Time’

2 min read

The second annual “It’s Movie Time at Harvard” – a free outdoor film screening presented by President Lawrence H. Summers – will be held Sept. 21 at 6:45 p.m. in Tercentenary Theatre (between Memorial Church and Widener Library). The event, open to the entire University community and their families, will feature complimentary sodas and popcorn.

“It’s Movie Time at Harvard” debuted last September with an outdoor screening of “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.” More than 3,000 members of the Harvard community came out for the inaugural event. Like last year’s event, the feature presentation will be chosen by a popular vote. Voting will be conducted during the freshman and upper-class activities fairs on Sept. 8 and 12.

“It was wonderful to have such a wide variety of students, faculty, staff, and their families at the first ‘Movie Time,’” said Summers, “and I hope even more members of the Harvard community will enjoy this year’s movie.”

Informal ground seating for “It’s Movie Time at Harvard” will begin at 5:30 p.m. in Tercentenary Theatre on Sept. 21, with the feature presentation beginning at approximately 6:45 p.m. Complimentary popcorn and sodas will be provided (no bottles or coolers will be permitted in the theater). Admission is free to individuals (and their guests) with a Harvard ID. In case of inclement weather, please call (617) 495-2711 or visit the event’s Web site at
