Walt Disney Animation’s latest theatrical film was Tangled, a musical film largely based on the fairy tale of Rapunzel. In the movie, we follow the life of Rapunzel, a princess whose hair contains magical powers — so long as it is never cut. Kidnapped early on in life and confined in a tower, she has never known freedom until a series of events around her 18th birthday allow her to do just that. Fun fact: This was the second most expensive movie ever made, just $40 million behind the third Pirates of the Caribbean movie. You'd think they could have spent just a tad bit more to take the record, eh?

The Activities Board will be showing the Oscars on its mammoth screen in McConomy this Sunday for all you film buffs out there. Want to be one of the first to know if Christian Bale, Black Swan, Natalie Portman, or any of the dozens of other movie and actor nominees will take home the hardware? Well, this is one of the better environments to be in to find out. Plus, you can heckle what’s sure to be another long and drawn-out show that is only slightly improved by James Franco and Anne Hathaway, as they will probably do some very silly things as they host the broadcast.
