Miller Movies is a movie usually put on three times a semester that is no longer in theatres but is not yet available on DVD. The cost to attend is $1 for students with their Bronco ID and $2 without. As a committee, we discuss possible movies to bring to WMU, how we can promote them, and fun giveaways to make the Miller Movie experience more exciting. For those committee members who chose to work the actual event, we serve the FREE popcorn, hand out the giveaways and introduce the movie! After doing all of that, those who help get to watch the movie completely free of charge! If you enjoy getting into movies free (the legal way) as well as a laid back atmosphere then the Miller Movies committee is the committee for you.
