PULLMAN, Wash. — Due to overwhelming response from the campus community, the Associated Students of Washington State University Films Committee will reshow Michael Moore’s documentary, “Bowling for Columbine,” March 1-2.
The film will be shown in the Compton Union Building Auditorium. Show times are 4:30 p.m., 7p.m. and 10 p.m. Saturday, March 1, and 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. Sunday, March 2. Admission is $3.
Bowling for Columbine is breaking college theatrical release records across the country because of the widespread appeal of the film’s message, said Tim Hogg, ASWSU director of communications.
Moore takes a creative approach in presenting a balanced discussion on the issue of gun control within the United States when he visits several controversial sites, including Columbine High School and gun demonstrations sponsored by the National Rifle Association.
“This is a film that people need to see regardless of what your stance is on this issue,” said WSU senior Heather Holben, who saw the film the first time it came to WSU and plans to attend again.
“The last time we showed this film, the response was awesome,” said Rob Baker, ASWSU Films co-chair. “Instructors across campus were giving credit to Bowling for Columbine. They recognize the importance of this film.”
