There’s just one more day to go until that fat paycheck comes in, but somehow you’ve still managed to find yourself penniless and in desperate need of entertainment. Well, if you can scrounge together enough change from between your couch cushions to get yourself to Cowtown for the night, then you’re in luck, because it’s raining free fun at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art (3501 Camp Bowie Blvd.). This Thursday you can soak in a bit of culture as you view the museum’s full collection during extended hours and then set up shop on the lawn as you take in one of John Hughes’ greatest movies, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, as part of its Sunset Cinema outdoor film series. Grab your significant other, the most illness-inclined friend you can find and a picnic basket full of sausage and join the campaign to save Ferris at 6 p.m. at the Amon Carter. Call 817-738-1933 or visit cartermuseum.org.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
