Free screening of 'Iron Man 3' at the Rec Center


Robert Downey, Jr. stars in 'Iron Man 3'After a hefty workout of pumping iron at the Campus Rec Center, head over to the Center Court to catch a free screening of "Iron Man 3" Thursday, September 12 at 7 p.m. presented by the Student Activities Council.

The third installment in Marvel's Iron Man franchise pits Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) against his greatest enemy, The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley), and our hero takes quite the beating.

A roundup of critics from Rotten Tomatoes gives the film a solid 78% positive score -- not quite as high as the original "Iron Man" movie, but higher than "Iron Man 2." It's also the year's highest-grossing film at the box office, so you won't want to be the only one on campus who hasn't seen it yet.

With "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." TV spin-off starting September 24, now is the perfect time to catch up the world of superheroes in which they work.

Along with the free movie will also be free pizza, chips, and drinks! If you're worried about extra calories though, just burn them off afterward in the Rec.
