Snow falls on OU's Norman campus Nov. 12, 2018.

The Union Programming Board will host a free movie marathon on campus Feb. 5.

Three Oscar-nominated films will be screened in Oklahoma Memorial Union in Meacham Auditorium from noon to 6 p.m. on account of the campus closure for inclement weather, according to an email. 

The free marathon begins at noon with a screening of "The Lighthouse," followed by "Joker" at 3 p.m. and "Jojo Rabbit" at 6 p.m.

"Be sure to swing by the Union to watch any of these movies for free during your day off," stated Sehrish Shahabuddin, union programming coordinator, in the email. 

"The Lighthouse" is nominated for Cinematography from the 92nd Academy Awards. 

"Joker" is nominated for Best Picture, Actor in a Leading Role (Joaquin Phoenix), Cinematography, Costume Design, Directing, Film Editing, Makeup and Hairstyling, Music for Original Score, Sound Editing and Mixing, and Writing for an Adapted Screenplay.
