EVENT REVIEW: Bright Lights Screening “Two Girls, One Cup” With Faculty Discussion

untitled-drawing-2

This past Tuesday, Adjunct Professor of Abnormal Psychology Bob Cobb hosted a screening of the infamous Two Girls, One Cup in the Paramount’s Bright Lights theater. Though only a handful of Emerson community members attended the event, those who did became part of a thrilling, thought provoking media experience.

“Media takes on many forms and it is important for you all as story tellers to understand that,” announced Cobb to the mostly empty Bright Lights theater before the screening started, “Let’s experience this not just as viewers, but thinkers.”

But even before lights went down, several students ardently questioned the validity of the screening including Kyle Guthrie ’19, a screenwriting major.

“Why the fuck are you showing this? You can’t just show something like this in a public setting. This is totally fucked,” voiced Guthrie moments before storming out of the theater.

Though everyone but Cobb intermittently left the theater throughout the screening, dashing all hopes of post-viewing discussion,  Lion’s Tooth caught up with the professor to ask him if the event was a success.

“Success is not measured by what you accomplish, but by the opposition you have encountered,” proclaimed Cobb, “That being said, I cannot show my face on this campus ever again.”

At press time, Emerson’s Custodial staff were still cleaning vomit off the floors of the theater.
