Yale Wiki had a snafu with the web host a while back, and it was down for quiiiite a while.

Curious about What Happened? Or who runs the wiki?

You'll probably notice some things that are out of date. Help fix it?

Have a NetID? Then you already have a YaleWiki editor account :)

Movies and Mimosas

Rave Motion Pictures in North Haven

Residential Colleges

Several residential colleges have movie theaters that can be rented out.

  • Silliman has Silliflicks
  • Branford TV Room
  • SY?


Classrooms in WLH and LC have big projectors and nice speakers that can hook up to your laptop.

Setting up a Projector (Outside)

  • You can rent an inflatable movie screen, projector (if you need it), and table (if you need it) at the UOFC's Equipment Rental site!:


When considering a location, your main concern should be somewhere dark enough to see the screen. College courtyards are sometimes ok, but not ideal.

Getting a Projector

  • Projectors are available for checkout free through the Bass Media Equipment Checkout Program.
  • You'll probably need an extension cord; some Master's Offices have them, but that might not be an option.


  • Some colleges have screens
    • BR
    • TC
    • DC
  • UOFC has screens
  • White sheet from Salvation Army
