Free Movie Weekend: Holiday Selection is Thin But Not Non-Existent
WASHINGTON – This is a holiday weekend, so the usual vast array of free film offerings at the local museums and stages is a bit truncated for Thanksgiving. But even though it’s a lean cornucopia, there are a few old movies you can see in and around town this week, with no cash required.

Meet Me in St. Louis (1944), wrapping up the Judy Garland series at the National Theatre. 6pm.
The Woodmans (2010), a documentary about Francesca Woodman, a provocative photographer who committed suicide at age 22. 12:30pm each day at the National Gallery of Art’s East Building Concourse auditorium.
