This past weekend, The Reel brought nostalgia to Temple’s campus through their ‘90s themed night.
On Saturday night, The Reel brought back the ‘90s by projecting Goosebumps onto its screen in the Underground part of the Student Activities Center. The film follows the life of Zach Young, who recently moves to Delaware and falls in love with his neighbor, Hannah. Eventually, it is revealed that Hannah’s somewhat peculiar, yet humorous father is R.L. Stine, the author of the well-known and best-selling “Goosebumps” books. After accidentally releasing the monsters from their books, Zach, Hannah, and her father embark on a hilarious adventure to put the beasts back into their original books.
By showing Goosebumps, many of the college students who attended the event felt like they were back in their childhood. Maddy Fraizer, freshman, enjoyed the ‘90s night at The Reel due to the fact that “it was nostalgic for me because the dummy, Slappy, was the scariest character of all when I was little.”
Besides the film, The Reel triggered the ‘90s ‘feels’ through raffles before the showing started. Amongst the prizes were stick-on-tattoos, Fun Dip, Nerf guns, and Gushers, all of which make up the culture of the time.
Next weekend, The Reel will be showing Sisters, which will be playing March 31 to April 3. Tickets are just $2.00 with a Temple ID, or $4.00 without it.
