Houston, Feb. 26, 2015 — The University of Houston community is invited to a free screening of the Disney/Pixar film WALL-E.

The UH Office of Sustainability is sponsoring the event, which is one of numerous RecycleMania activities taking place across campus. The movie screening will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 5, in the multipurpose room of Oberholtzer Hall.

There will be a make-your-own popcorn bar, water, lemonade, free water bottles, tote bags and a raffle for a WALL-E recycled art piece, as well as a Kindle Fire HD.

Faculty, staff, students, alumni and their guests are all welcome to attend.

According to the IMDB website, WALL-E takes place 700 years in the future, when the planet is overrun with garbage and devoid of plant and animal life, the result of years of environmental degradation and consumerism. The surviving humans are living on a spaceship. The original plan was for them to live there five years while cleaning robots prepared Earth for recolonization. But after 700 years, only one robot remains.
