You Don’t Have to Go Far to Enjoy the Arts

by creed on November 14th, 2013

Isn’t it great that you don’t have to leave Stony Brook to see new Movies, Operas, Comedies, Film Festivals and more!  So where do you go to see these films and events?  The answer is: the Staller Center!

Don’t graduate from Stony Brook without first taking a peak inside this great center for the arts.  If you are a freshman or transfer and you have not used your “first on us ticket” yet, you should do so as soon as possible.  I remember my first time going to a Staller show (and I even used my “first on us ticket”!).  I went to see Cirque Eloise – an acrobatic show that was great for the entire family and was very similar to Cirque du Soleil – and I was able to get the tickets for half off!

Be on the look out for cool movies and events – every student can get discounts on tickets purchased.  Why wouldn’t you go to the Staller Center? You can see people like:  Midori, Bill Cosby, The Emerson Quartet, Wynton Marsalis and even more famous people (and you don’t have to be a music whiz to recognize their names).

For those of you that need to take a class over the summer or you are just looking for something fun to do – be on the look out for CCS 204 which is offered every year during Summer Session II.  CCS 204 is a Film Festival class and meets to watch all the films during the 10-day film festival held at the Staller Center as well as meeting times for midterms and finals.  The class consists of: watching films, talking about films, writing about films, and you get 3 credits…so what’s not to like?

There are so many great things to go see at the Staller Center and do (if you are into Theatre, Music, or Art) it would be silly not to go. So take advantage of the Staller Center before you graduate…the discounts only last while you’re a student!
