This weekend’s feature film will be Interstellar!

In Earth’s future, a global crop blight and second Dust Bowl are slowly rendering the planet uninhabitable. Professor Brand (Michael Caine), a brilliant NASA physicist, is working on plans to save mankind by transporting Earth’s population to a new home via a wormhole. But first, Brand must send former NASA pilot Cooper (Matthew McConaughey) and a team of researchers through the wormhole and across the galaxy to find out which of three planets could be mankind’s new home.

Coffeehouse is a monthly show that showcases student talent.  Come get some free coffee and cookies while enjoying a great show!  SAB Coffeehouses serves our campus in several ways.  They provide an opportunity for students to bring their talent to the next level. 
Coffeehouse was created to raise awareness of the talent that exists right here on our campus.  Encouragement from fellow peers is a fine jewel offered to those who are brave enough to get on stage in front of the big audience.  And finally, Coffeehouse is meant to inspire.  Cheer for your friends and peers on stage and let the show inspire new ideas and passions.
