Celebrate the end of the school year and the beginning of summer with SHIFT. We will host a free, interactive movie screening of “Extra Ordinary” on Wednesday, May 20th at 6:00 pm in partnership with the Alamo Drafthouse, E+E and the Longhorn Wellness Center.
Play “Extra Ordinary” themed bingo while watching the movie for a chance to win an Austin and UT SHIFT care package. We will send a bingo card with your validation code. The first 20 people to upload a picture of a winning bingo card to @UTSHIFT the night of the filming will get a care package sent right to their door.
