The University of Notre Dame will publicly unveil the largest construction project in its 175-year history with a pair of events during Kicks & Flicks Week August 20 through 25. From a football scrimmage and tours of new facilities to a movie on the video board, fans of all ages are invited to experience the enhanced amenities in and around Notre Dame Stadium during these events.
On Friday (Aug. 25), Notre Dame will welcome students back to campus and open the stadium again to visitors for Flick on the Field, an open house event featuring a showing of “Rudy” on the new video board.
Prior to the movie, fans will be entertained by music and can make purchases at some of the stadium concessions stands. Students from Notre Dame, Saint Mary’s College and Holy Cross College will be allowed to sit on the football field to watch the movie. Students are permitted to bring blankets on the field, but food and drinks on the field are prohibited. Other attendees may sit in the stadium bowl and seating will be general admission.
Gates will open at 6 p.m. Guests should use Gates B and E for general admission seating, and students must enter the stadium via the tunnel entrance (across from Hesburgh Library) for access to the field. The movie will begin at 7:30 p.m. Both events are free, open to the public and will be held rain or shine. The University’s stadium bag policy and other game day policies will be in place for these events. For more information, visit gameday.nd.edu.
