Movies are shown in digital format using 2K Digital Projection Facility (D-Cinema - 17000 lumens)

Regular movies are screened in OAT every Saturday at 8:00PM (regular schedule) with an interval of 8-10 mins about half way into the movie.

A tentative schedule of movies is announced to the campus community by an email in the beginning of the month.
