Avoid Memorial Day Weekend Wallet Hangover

Memorial Day brings one of the biggest weekends for movies of the year. Theaters will be packed to the rafters with both Fast & Furious 6 and The Hangover Part III opening, so avoid the crowds and save some pocket change while you’re at it. Check out these movies showing for free in and around town.

No Need to Venture Into Deep Space for Free Movies

Captain Kirk and Spock will likely give Iron Man and Jay Gatsby a run for their money in the box office this weekend, but you don’t need to spend your hard earned dollars to get your sci-fi fix.

Free Films Roaring Into Theaters This Weekend

The 1920s come roaring back into theaters this weekend with the hip-hop-laden retelling of The Great Gatsby, but you don’t have to pay full price to see some real classics of the silver screen, or any price.

Avoid Iron Man 3 Crowds, Save Price of Admission

Iron Man 3 is going to blast the competition away at this weekend’s box office. Perhaps it’s no surprise, then, that the pickings are rather slim in the free movie department this week, but the bargains are still out there!

Free Movie Weekend: ‘Damn Yankees’ is for ‘The Birds’

The Michael Bay-directed Pain and Gain may be the big debut arriving in theaters this weekend, but the real pain is the price you have to pay for tickets! This weekend, you can see films from such legendary directors as Alfred Hitchcock, Clint Eastwood, George Lucas, Elia Kazan and Georges Méliès, all on the big screen, and all for free.
