All members of the community are welcome to attend a free outdoor screening of the movie "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" at Penn State DuBois. 

The show is scheduled for 9 p.m. Tuesday, July 1, on the campus lawn. Free popcorn and snow cones will be available. Those attending are asked to bring their own chairs. In the event of rain, the event will be moved inside the gymnasium. 

Released this year, "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" is a sequel to the 2011 film "Captain America: The First Avenger." According to Marvel Studios, this installment finds Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C., and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy, the Winter Soldier.

A patriotic attire contest will also be held. Individuals are encouraged to come dressed in red, white and blue.  Prizes will be awarded for the best dressed. Judging for the clothing completion will take place at 8:30 pm. 

This event is funded by the Student Activity Fee, and organized by the Office of Student Engagement.
