Since Sam Reimi's "Spider-Man" debuted in 2002, superhero movies have become the new norm. However, in the last few summers, they've grown old and tired, and it seemed that "Captain America: The First Avenger" would be another casuality.
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.
UNO Television presented a homemade documentary during the event "Relive the Journey: St. Cecilia's Cathedral through the Lens of UNO Television" on Nov. 30. About 45 people attended the event, which took place in the Community Service and Public Affairs Commons building's room 132 at 5:30 p.m.
If you've seen the 1967 film adaptation of Jacqueline Susann's "Valley of the Dolls," brace yourself for an even more rouge (and hilarious) parody at the SNAP!/Shelterbelt Theatre. The stage production, of the same name as the book and movie, follows the movie script almost entirely, with one obvious exception: cross-dressing.
