Freshman Orientation begins its exclusive engagement today. The movie is about Clay, an all-American teenager from the Midwest, heads off to college only to discover school is not the oasis of beer drinking and partying that he had imagined. In an attempt to win over the woman of his dreams, Clay pretends to be gay. The charade blows up in Clay's face, when it lands him in the middle of campus activism, the hazing of both a fraternity and sorority and all the drama that comes along with his new lifestyle. The end result is a campus-wide revolution that will change both Clay's life, as well as his perception of others. $8. Check website for schedule.
