Who needs friends when you’ve got movies like this?

INT. DORMITORY – SMALL ROOM ON SECOND FLOOR – DAY

We see two roommates sitting on separate beds on opposite sides of the room facing the south wall, both characters are facing each other. They are both students at Central Washington University. One is paging through a Hype publication, looking at all of the upcoming events for fall quarter. The other is mindlessly fingering through his Facebook feed on his phone.

While flipping through the pages, Jeff looks up at Mike.

JEFF

Hey Mike, did you see that there’s all these movies playing for free? These all seem to be newer.

MIKE

Huh? Oh, that’s cool.

JEFF

(Excited)

Oh, look! Jurassic World is playing this Monday actually, I really wanted to see that. Isn’t that still in theaters? That’s awesome. Wanna go watch it with me? Looks like it’s free for us.

MIKE

Nah, not really. I’m not really into movies.

JEFF

(Confused look)

What? You’re not into movies? Not even ones that are free and are played at theater right here at school?

MIKE

Yeah, just not my thing. Ever since Star Wars: Episode 1 I just haven’t been that into it.

JEFF

Well, I can’t say I blame ya there. But come on man, at least check it out with me. If not this Monday, next Monday they have the new Avengers.

MIKE

Oh yeah? I did want to see that…

JEFF

Great. It’s set then!

The camera slowly pans back as both characters talk, muted by music playing.
