YORK, Pa. — Penn State York invites the campus and community to "travel across the spider-verse" with a free showing of “Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse” set for Friday, Sept. 8, at 7:30 p.m. in the Pullo Family Performing Arts Center on campus. The event is sponsored by the University Programming Board (UPB) at Penn State York.
“This is a great opportunity for Penn State York to build connections with the surrounding community and have them experience the magic of the Pullo Center,” said Abby Snyder, a Penn State York student who works in the student affairs office. Students voted on what movie should be featured and wanted the free movie event to be open to the community.
