Thursday After Dark (TAD) is a student's go-to for late night entertainment every Thursday night of the semester. Whether on or off campus, this night of fun is always free.

In addition to offering movies in the Carolina Theatre, you can find Gamecock Entertainment displaying specialty showings on our outdoor mobile movie theater! We take advantage of the nice weather here in South Carolina with showings of your favorite films in locations such as Davis Field next to the Russell House or on the pool deck at The Strom Thurmond Wellness & Fitness Center!
