February is traditionally known in the film industry as a dump month, the time in which studios take a steamy, hot, collective crap on the proverbial chest of theatergoers around the world.
The holidays are a time to stay home and spend time with family and friends. It’s also a time to trek to the nearest movie theater and pay to sit in silence with a bunch of strangers for a few hours.
I turned 23 this August and received a birthday card from my grandparents.
Well this one snuck up on me.
Robin Schulze, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, approached Thomas Feeley in “late September or early October,” to inform him that Marc Böhlen would no longer be DMS chair and asked him to fill the position, Feeley said.

The season has changed and so have the offerings at the box office. Unlike the summer weather, the season’s blockbusters don’t seem to be sticking around. Instead we’ll be treated to some more seasonable hard sci-fi, Oscar bait and the token horror releases.
The Buffalo Niagara Film Festival held its opening ceremony Wednesday night at the Four Seasons Cinema in Niagara Falls. The festival will showcase films over the next ten days produced by independent filmmakers.
A million dollars isn’t cool. You know what is cool? Roughly $320,000 worth of funds stolen from university bank accounts and funneled through falsified tax forms and charitable donations, as former UB Vice President Dennis Black and former UB Campus Living Director Andrea Costantino admitted to last week. As “Baby Driver” proved this summer, any good crime needs a good playlist. So if you’re thinking of committing some light larceny in the near future, we’ve got you covered.
