Spoiler alert! USF students will know what transpires in the first episode of Game of Thrones’ fifth season before almost everyone else.
The pre-screening will be held March 31 in the Marshall Student Center Oval Theater, almost two weeks before the episode premieres April 12 on HBO.
Fans who are faculty and staff will have to cover their ears to avoid spoilers, however, as the screening is only open to students.
Though the episode will not screen until 8 p.m., doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Renee Hunt, director of communications and marketing for Student Affairs, said she expects a crowd and students should arrive early to get a better chance at one of the 700 seats.
Students are also encouraged to cosplay as characters from the show. Hunt said there’s also a possibility of a costume contest involving prizes or giveaways.
The screening is brought to students by USF Housing and Residential Education. The university, which has partnered previously with HBO to provide HBO GO to students who live on campus, is a stop on HBO’s college tour.
Students who live on campus interested in catching up with the series — renowned for its complex political struggles playing out in a fantasy world of dragons and snow zombies — can watch all the episodes on hbogo.com.
