Zips Programming Network is sponsoring The Prestige

It all begins in rapidly changing, turn-of-the-century London. At a time when magicians are idols and celebrities of the highest order, two young magicians set out to carve their own paths to fame. The flashy, sophisticated Robert Angier is a consummate entertainer, while the rough-edged purist Alfred Borden is a creative genius who lacks the panache to showcase his magical ideas. They start out as admiring friends and partners. But when their biggest trick goes terribly awry, they become enemies for life--each intent on outdoing and upending the other. Trick by trick, show by show, their ferocious competition builds until it knows no bounds, even utilizing the fantastical new powers of electricity and the scientific brilliance of radical inventor Nikola Tesla--while the lives of everyone around them hang in the balance.


This is a free movie for all UA Students and only $1 for non UA students! The movie will be held in The Student Union Gardner Theatre. The movie will be at 8 pm on Thursday January 25, Friday January 26, and Saturday January 27. Tickets are available in the Student Union Info Center starting January 19, 2007!
We hope to see you there!
