Only one cheap ticket allowed
Arizona Daily Wildcat
Effective the first of the year, UApresents modified its student ticket discount policy. The change is due to the recently-mandated state budget cuts.
Full-time University of Arizona students with a valid student ID may now purchase one ticket to any discounted performance, instead of the two tickets the policy formerly allowed.
"We are pleased that we are able to preserve the student discount program in
light of the current budgetary situation," said Ken Foster, executive director of UApresents. "We want students to continue to enjoy these discounts to our performances."

Nazi filmmaker to release movie
Leni Reinfenstahl - Nazi filmmaker
Leni Riefenstahl, who produced masterful propaganda films for the Nazis, plans to coordinate the release of her first movie in nearly 50 years with her 100th birthday this summer.
After hearing Hitler speak in 1932 at a Berlin rally - the year before he took power in Germany - Riefenstahl offered her services as a filmmaker.
She made three films during the reign of the Third Reich, the most notorious being "Triumph of the Will," a documentary of the 1934 Nazi rally at Nuremberg.
Critically acclaimed as the best propaganda film ever made, it features a godlike Hitler and seemingly endless parades of smartly-dressed Nazi soldiers.
Though her films won international awards before World War II, her close ties to Hitler made her a pariah after the Third Reich collapsed.
"I was suddenly defamed, being called a top Nazi ... I was portrayed as a monster," Riefenstahl said.
In the interview, she said she was "na•ve" when she first met Hitler.
She distanced herself from Nazi ideology and war crimes, saying she knew nothing of the concentration camps and rejected requests from Hitler to do feature films on themes like the Hitler Youth.
Bloom: 'Rings' shot out of sequence
Orlando Bloom says he kept referring to J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" for his role in the films based on the trilogy.
That's because the three movies, shot simultaneously in New Zealand, were filmed out of sequence over a period of 18 months, Bloom told reporters.
"You could film a scene from the first movie in the morning and a scene from the third movie in the afternoon, and you could have shot the scene before that like three weeks earlier or two weeks earlier," the actor said.
"So to keep that all in your head, it was like homework. You'd study the book, then study the scripts and then kind of merge the two."
"The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" is now in theaters. Two sequels, "The Two Towers" and "The Return of the King," are set for release in December 2002 and 2003.
