Meteor Theater

Meteor Theater is a student-run movie program that screens popular movies on campus throughout the school year. It includes the Cosmic Film Festival and Cosmic Film Workshops, which are held each spring to encourage an interest and appreciation of student-created original movies and short films.

Our Programs


At workshops, professionals experienced in topics such as film editing, lighting, cinematography and more lead one-hour discussions to introduce students to filmmaking.


Cinematheque includes indie, art house and classic film screenings. They are contextualized by guest speakers who provide insight into the subject and themes of the film while fostering discussion among the audience.


Mainstream movies include popcorn, drinks and a theater experience as Meteor Theater screen some of the biggest hits of the year.

Cosmic Film Festival

The Cosmic Film Festival is the annual student film festival where the creations of passionate UT Dallas students are screened. It is a night of glitz and glam where student works are awarded in seven different categories, from Best Sound Design to Best Film!
