Campus Cinema hosts ‘Barbenheimer’ double feature

On Sunday, Dec. 3, NMU Campus Cinema and Special Events Committee hosted the infamous double feature “Barbenheimer”.

Oppenheimer started at 3 p.m. with Barbie following at 6:30 p.m. Outside Jamrich 1100, pink and black decorations were spread all over the hallway with themed candy, snacks and refreshing strawberry lemonade. There was also a costume contest, with best-dressed awarded to the best Oppenheimer and Barbie dressed before each movie.

First year student Natalia Collins dressed up for the event in a pink sparkly Santa hat and attended both movies.

“I went to see Barbie this summer on opening day. I wore the same outfit, but with the hat it felt like ‘’tis the season,’” Collins said.

Abigail Faix, Features Editor
My name is Abby, I am a fourth-year student at Northern. I am studying Multimedia Journalism with a minor in Political Science. I've always been passionate about journalism since I was in high school. I was offered this position as a Journalism Practicum student and am now so thankful to have the opportunity to write for The Northwind as the new Features Editor. I've found that The Northwind has led me to more connections throughout the university and community than I would find on my own. I'm always interested in getting to know new people and what's happening around Marquette.
