People living on campus may not know this, but they have access to a large library of movies in the RHA Cinema. This library has over 200 movies with more added often.
Anything from brand new movies to old classics can be found here, even a couple TV show seasons. All it takes is a quick Google search for “RHA Cinema NDSU.”
But out of the 200 plus options, which ones are really worth the watch?
‘A Quiet Place’
“A Quiet Place” stars Emily Blunt and John Krasinski in a world inhabited by alien creatures that will kill you if they hear the smallest of sounds. Survivors must live in complete silence and use sign language to communicate.
It’s a very eerie premise and will have you on the edge of your seat for many scenes. You will spend the movie terrified of what will happen to this family in this quiet world. Needless to say, it’s a must-watch if you like horror. However, even if you don’t, you will enjoy this (just keep the lights on).
“Baby Driver” is an amazing getaway driver movie with every action synced to the beat of the soundtrack. Music plays a huge role in every scene of this fast-paced movie, and it keeps it engaging and amazing.
This movie has heart, action, cars and lots of music. You’ll be glued to your seat until the very end. Director Edgar Wright (“Scott Pilgrim vs. the World”) delivers yet another gem with “Baby Driver.”
’21 Jump Street’ and ’22 Jump Street’
Based on the TV show of the same name, “21 Jump Street” delivers on its strange premise of cops infiltrating a high school and will have you rolling with laughter. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill have such great chemistry in this movie that you will be rooting for them the entire time.
The sequel “22 Jump Street” brings the same storyline to college. It does not feel like a rehash and instead delivers on new laughs and thrills. It’s a pretty great comedy that also includes tales of brotherhood, relationships and the perils of school.
‘Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy’
“Anchorman” is a classic comedy that stars Will Ferrell as ’70s TV anchorman Ron Burgundy. For those who often find themselves lost when their friends reference this iconic Ferrell comedy, now is the perfect time to watch.
It tells the story of an anchorman and his team on their quest for love and redemption.
Watch this, but avoid the sequel; it’s unneeded.
The ‘Bourne’ trilogy
The Bourne trilogy includes “Identity,” “Supremacy” and “Ultimatum.” RHA Cinema also has “Legacy” and “Jason Bourne,” but those are nowhere near as good as the original trilogy.
Starring Matt Damon as a super agent Jason Bourne, he must overcome amnesia in his quest to figure out his identity and the people he used to work for. It’s like James Bond, but bigger, better and has plots that are way more connected.
The trilogy is a classic secret agent thriller series, so if you love a good secret agent or action flick, these movies are a must-watch.
Well because North Dakota State is in Fargo, it only makes sense to watch the dark comedy/cop movie “Fargo.” It’s fun, intriguing and funny. You’ll be trying to mimic their accents for a while, or wonder if you already have the accent.
“Ex Machina” is another science fiction flick, but that does not make it any less intriguing. Alicia Vikander stars as an artificially intelligent robot that tries to manipulate a programmer in order to earn her freedom, and she is willing to do anything to make it a reality.
It’s not a fast-paced action flick, but instead a psychological thriller full of mind games that is thoroughly enjoyable.
There are many movies on the RHA Cinema, way too many to review right here and now. They also have “Venom,” “Zero Dark Thirty,” “Ready Player One,” “Room,” “Interstellar” and the entire Harry Potter series just to name a few more.
You’ll definitely be able to find something here you like. In the off chance you can’t, they also have a suggestion box to fill in your own suggestions. There is no guarantee they will be added, but it’s worth a shot.
All it takes is one quick Google search for the RHA Cinema, and you will be watching movies in no time.
