University College Events
Netflix Watch Party Chrome Extension
On Thursday, December 3, STATIC hosts a Netflix Watch Party double feature with The Lorax and The Grinch! Event begins at 8:00 p.m.
In The Lorax, "twelve-year-old Ted (Zac Efron) lives in a place virtually devoid of nature; no flowers or trees grow in the town of Thneedville. Ted would very much like to win the heart of Audrey (Taylor Swift), the girl of his dreams, but to do this, he must find that which she most desires: a Truffula tree. To get it, Ted delves into the story of the Lorax (Danny DeVito), once the gruff guardian of the forest, and the Once-ler (Ed Helms), who let greed overtake his respect for nature."
In The Grinch, "the Grinch (Benedict Cumberbatch) and his loyal
dog, Max, live a solitary existence inside a cave on Mount Crumpet. His
main source of aggravation comes during Christmastime when his
neighbours in Whoville celebrate the holidays with a bang. When the Whos
decide to make Christmas bigger and brighter, the disgruntled Grinch
realizes there is one way to gain peace and quiet. With help from Max,
the green grump hatches a scheme to pose as Santa Claus, steal
Christmas, and silence the Whos' holiday cheer once and for all."
Watch via Google Chrome's Netflix Watch Party extension, available here! Must have a Netflix account, but you can sign-up for a free 30-day trial!
STATIC will ask various pieces of Dr. Seuss universe trivia, with the winner taking home some amazing prizes.
