Northridge — The University Student Union (USU) is rolling out the red carpet for all CSUN students when Matador Nights goes Hollywood! On Friday, April 21 from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m., it’s going to be an evening of non-stop glitz, glamour and good times as the USU welcomes you to “One Night in La La Land”.  Come experience CSUN’s take on the best Hollywood hotspots along with thrilling rides, exciting games, fun activities and a delicious choice of quintessential Hollywood bites.

“The USU will be transformed into an incredible late night Hollywood scene for our biggest event of the semester,” said Student Events Assistant and Event Lead, Tania Dominguez. “We’re going to feature the most iconic Hollywood locations and turn them all into a total party, right here at Matador Nights on campus for all students to attend!”

You can start your night off at the Grand Salon in the USU to experience the wonders of the Santa Monica pier, including carnival games, inflatable games and airbrush and caricature artists. Then take a stroll down CSUN’s own Hollywood Walk of Fame in the Plaza del Sol or get ready for your paparazzi moment in the photo booth. 

Enter a more glamorous time in the Northridge Center, which will be decked out as a grand old theatre where you can get a taste of many Hollywood themed nightlife activities. The main room will have a live DJ along with other exciting performances from a magician and a beatboxer as well as Marilyn Monroe and silver statue impersonators.  You can also experience an upscale Hollywood lounge featuring bougie mocktails. For some extra fun, treat yourself to an action-packed game of laser tag or kick back with a round of glow-in-the-dark mini golf. 

If you're feeling hungry at Matador Nights, you can grab a late-night bite all throughout the event. Choose from street tacos, nachos and churros . You can also take a ride on the Ferris wheel and Round Up ride just outside the Northridge Center.

Students with a current CSUN ID can pick up their FREE ticket now at the USU Sol Center Front Desk and the A.S. Ticket Office.
