The undergraduate Student Association’s popular Summer Film Series returns this season with a lineup of free movies that includes “Wonder Woman” and “Beauty and the Beast,” as well as the latest in the “Star Wars,” “Fast & Furious” and “Pirates of the Caribbean” series.

The series opens June 19 and runs through Aug. 27. Screenings will take place on Monday and Friday nights on the Special Events Field adjacent to the Student Union on the North Campus and on Wednesday nights on the Hayes Hall lawn on the South Campus.
