The GSA had a reel good time hosting a movie night on September 28.

Bear River’s Gay Straight Alliance hosted a movie night in the MPR to bring awareness to Ally Week and provide a fun activity for Bruins.

Counselor Bethany Williams and others described the setting.

“(It is a) more intimate and cozy setting and less distracting than a bigger setting,” she said.

“We wanted people to sprawl out and have it more family-friendly,” said Principal Amy Besler.

“It felt cozy and wasn’t as cold as it would be in the gym,” said Sydney Buckman, a sophomore.

The students who attended the event were very pleased with the outcome.

“It was sick as frick,” said Sydney Buckman, a sophomore.

“It was fun and ironic in a way,” said Cameron Pratt, a freshman. “(It was ) fun having a lot of people around.”

Students and teachers felt the movie “Zootopia” reflected the themes of GSA perfectly.

“GSA all voted on it,” said Mrs. Williams. “It has a great message of inclusion of everyone in a society.”

“(The movie was chosen) to open minds to different groups of people and different types of thinking,” said Natalie Hubacz, a junior and vice president of GSA.

“It was eye opening,” said Jazzlyn Jasper, a sophomore. “(It helped) to learn things about people and not just judge them.”

“I felt like it said ‘don’t give up,’” said Buckman.

The GSA sold food at the movie night. Principal Besler said there was popcorn, bottled water, and candy all for 3 dollars, in addition to the free movie.

“(I came to the movie night for) the fullness of popcorn and satisfaction of watching the movie for the second time,” said Aydan Rossovich, a sophomore.

“I definity thought it would be boring but turned out great and the food tasted good too,” said Pratt.

GSA officials said this movie night was the first of many to come this year.

“GSA will host quarterly,” Mrs Williams said. “…I’d say 4 more times this year.”

Students had ideas for future movie showings.

“’Finding Dory’ may be a later one,” Hubacz said.
