Top Down films run through Aug. 30 with movies each Thursday night. Doors open at 7 p.m. with food and beverages available for purchase. Music begins at 8 p. m. and films begin at dusk. Entry for advance ticket holders is guaranteed until 8:30 p.m.

A limited number of chairs are available on a first-come basis, so participants are invited to bring a chair, pillow, or blanket, along with a light sweater or jacket. Parking is limited around the PSU parking structure, but with the location right off the bus mall, folks can consider public transit as a good option.
