Movies vs. Meals

Hello fellow penny pinchers. Living in New York City, you have a never ending supply of things to stimulate the mind, body, and soul. Museums, shopping, restaurants, movies; but who can afford to actually enjoy these things?

At $12+ a ticket, our movie dates are few and far between. Rather than battling with "Do I want to see Harry Potter or eat for the next 2 weeks?" why not take advantage of the numerous free movie screenings this summer? With our free movie screening schedule, you can see all your favorite flicks without spending a dime.

Mondays at Bryant Park (a personal fav)
Movies start around 8pm, but get there early! The lawn opens at 5pm and if this week's screening of Harold and aude was any indication, it gets crowded. Bring a cheap picnic, or hit up Crumbs for yummy cupcakes. Tap into your old skool film lover with these vintage movies.
