How To Stretch
In Ann Arbor
By ELLEN FRANK
Ann Arbor often seems like the only restaurant inside a
crowded airport-prices can be high because it is the only thing
Ann Arbor's theatres long ago gave into the price rise.
Concerts at Hill Auditorium can cost as much as $6 for a single
seat. Even the Union has given up the 10 cents cup of coffee.
And in more academic realms--libraries charge 25 cents an
hour for overdue overnight books.
But the sophisticated student, if he looks long and hard,
can find some reasonably-priced ways of having fun. Happily
some means of Ann Arbor entertainment have adjusted for the
poor struggling student, whose parent's income falls below the
University's median of $17,000.
A typical male student refers to the film opportunities here
as ". .. a great place for a cheap date."
The university film societies-Cinema Guild and Cinema II
-cost only 50 cents. Cinema Guild, in the auditorium of the
Architecture and Design School, shows a wide spectrum of
films, from early American silent comedies to modern works
of Antonioni. Showings are Thursday through Sunday during
the academic year at 7 and 9:05 p.m.
Cinema II is geared toward the more popular Hollywood
creations of recent years. Showings there are on Friday and
Saturday evenings at 7 and 9.
The Newman Center-the Catholic students' association-
also presents films. Their program of mainly foreign films is
scheduled sporadically through the academic year. The price
is again 50 cents.
In the area of experimental film, the Cinema Guild, in
cooperation with the Dramatic Arts Center presents the five
day Ann Arbor Film Festival in early March. Entrance is only
75 cents for the festival, the largest of its kind in the country.
During the same weekend, the Canterbury House on Maynard
Street offers an 8 mm. film festival.
The Speech Department presents student performed, di-
rected and costumed Lab Bills sporadically but often during
the academic year. Performa~nces are advertised in The Daily.
Entrance is free.
As enjoyable for adults as for children are the productions
of the University Players Children's Theatre. The plays are
scheduled irregularly on Saturday afternoons. Adult admission
is $1; and 50 cents for children.
Lectures and Discussions
Several organizations in Ann Arbor are open on a regular
basis for discussion. Among them is the Guild House at 802
Monroe where lunch with a topical discussion by professors
and students is available for 25 cents every Friday and Monday
Discussions are held at the Ark, 1421 Hill St., each Thurs-
day and Friday night. Fifty cents covers entrance, coffee and
donuts. Saturday nights the Ark has entertainment-usually a
band or singer, for $1.
Each January there is a Writer-in-Residence program. A
noted author or critic spends three weeks doing lectures, acting
on panels and numerous other events-all of which are free.
Uncountable other interesting lectures, discussions and
debates are held nearly every day somewhere on the campus.
To keep up on these, check the Across Campus column in The
Daily or the University Calendar posted weekly in most
It is possible to hear good rock or blues for less than $1.
The Prime Movers play at Clint's Club Bar, 111 E. Ann, on
weekends. Slow drinking of beer is cheap. Unfortunately, you
must be 21.
The Seventh Seal is known well in Ann Arbor for its
free concerts of rock and adapted Eastern music. In warm
weather they often play on Sundays at West Park, Seventh St.
and Huron. Time and date of concerts are found on signs
hung throughout the city.
A Dixieland band plays nightly at Bimbo's, 114 E. Washing-
ton. To keep it under $1, drink slowly in this sing-along style
Classical music is free in abundance. The School of
Music offers many concerts and recitals, from symphonies to
chamber music. Monthly schedules are available in the ticket
office on the first floor of Burton Bell Tower. The concerts
are generally held at the School of Music on North Campus
(easily reached by bus), with some on the main campus at
Rackham Auditorium and Hill Auditorium.
Museums and Collections
The University Museums Building at Washtenaw and
North University houses the Exhibit Museum-a storehouse
of natural history focusing on the state of Michigan. The
museum is open from 8 to 5 Monday through Saturday, and
1:30 to 5:30 on Sundays.
The Mineral and Geology Exhibits of the Natural Science
Building on North University is a good place to spend time
It is also wise to check out the Kelsey Museum of Archae-
ology on State Street between classes. Collections of Roman
and Near Eastern archaeology are here with emphasis on the
University excavations in Egypt.
The Museum of Art in Alumni Memorial Hall on State
Street is open Monday through Saturday, 9 to 5; Sunday 2
to 5. The new lighting and design of this recently renovated
building complement the remarkable and divers ecollections
Every so often, for some Midwestern College Rah-Rah,
there will be a weekend of partially free festivities for the
campus as a whole. These include Homecoming, Winter Week-
end, and Labor Day Weekend. Each weekend announces its
program with signs on the Diag and notices in The Daily.
Many believe the Blue Front to be the best place in Ann
Arbor to spend a 'few leisurely hours. This small book and
magazine store at the corner of State and Packard is an
