Classic Disney movies heading to campus

Let's take a trip back to 1999.  Every month, a new Disney Channel Original Movie (DCOM) premiered and instantly became a classic tale for elementary school students.  While these movies were the talk of the playground, in recent years they have become hard to find.  
Luckily for UNO students, classics like "Smart House," "The Color of Friendship" and "Brink!" are coming to campus, thanks to Maverick Productions.  
The student-run organization is looking to provide your DCOM fix with a Disney Channel Movie Series this semester. "Smart House" will kick off the series Thursday at 8 p.m. in the Milo Bail Student Center Ballroom.

You're a close second) is singing her theme song about the provincial life she lives in France on the screen in front of me, and I get goose bumps.
