Cheapskates' Guide to Film: Five Free Weekend Movies


For all its flash and bling, Dallas is a pretty easy city to do on the cheap. Take this weekend: With the Oak Cliff Film Fest in town, cinematic scavengers can feast on five freebie scraps at both outdoor and indoor viewings. Over at Strauss Square, you're invited to RSVP for a seat, or simply sprawl in the grass and catch Basquiat, it's this month's pick as the monthly free Sunset Screening put on by AT&T Center and the Dallas Film Society. (And since Strauss Square is now BYOB, you can bring wine and snacks with you and look like a total gentlemen, rather than "a seedy dude who brings booze where he shouldn't.")

Here's a free movie schedule for this weekend:
