All students are invited to attend the pre-screening party that will air the show four days before the nationwide premiere. The event will be held at the Ferguson Theater and doors will open at 6:30 p.m.
HBO is partnering with University Programs to sponsor the event. Kaitlyn Elgart, a sophomore majoring in finance and math, is an HBO brand ambassador on campus. Elgart has been involved in organizing and promoting the event.
“This is our first event partnering with University Programs,” she said. “It will be our largest event of the year, so their partnership has been very beneficial.”
Katy Brock is University Programs’ programmer for this event.
“It is such a great opportunity for University Programs to partner with HBO to bring this special, exclusive event to UA students,” she said.
With more than 500 UA students who have added the event to their Facebook pages, it is expected to be a crowded viewing. In addition to the premiere, there will be games and giveaways before the screening begins. Seating will be first come, first served.
