Movies: Residence Life Cinema
What is Residence Life Cinema?
Residence Life Cinema is a division of Swank Motion Pictures, Inc. ® and provides a full program solution by offering campus entertainment using licensed Hollywood movies.
Movies are changed monthly with two ways to view:
1) Residence Life Cinema is available on Channel 4.6 in the Residence Halls.
2) Channel Guide Line-Up - Residence Life Cinema Movie Schedule (Channel 4.6)
3) On-demand, streaming content available. Click Here to Enter
All channels are digital. A TV with a QAM tuner is required to view channels. Most HD or digital TVs sold after 2006 have an internal digital QAM tuner. If you have an older television that doesn’t have a QAM tuner, a TV Tuner box that has a QAM tuner built-in must be purchased. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get more information or call us at 916-278-2555.
