"Movies on the Lawn" is wrapping up its 2021 summer season. The popular outdoor family-friendly film series sponsored by the UTEP Student Engagement and Leadership Center will conclude with a showing of School of Rock on Friday, August 6.

And you don’t have to be a UTEP student to attend; Movies on the Lawn is free and open to the public.

Although the event is suitable for the whole family, the Jack Black comedy is rated PG-13. If you're okay with a few bad words and drug references then save the date.
