SAB Presents: chrisjones

Become the star of this mind-boggling show with chrisjones, the famous America's Got Talent hypnotist who hypnotized Howie Mandel.

Outdoor Movie: TAG

Join SAB at 8 p.m. on Friday, August 24 for our outdoor movie, TAG, on Comstock Field. Come for food, friends and fun. Rain location is LBC 105. TAG tells the story of five highly competitive friends who hit the ground running in a no-holds-barred game of tag for one month every year. They’ve been playing since the first grade—risking their necks, jobs and relationships to take each other down with the battle cry “You’re It!” This year, the game coincides with the wedding of their only undefeated player, which should finally make him an easy target. But he knows they’re coming…and he’s ready. Based on a true story, “TAG” shows how far some guys will go to be the last man standing. Warning: This film is rated R for language, crude sexual content, drug use and brief nudity.
