Free Tickets to AFI Film Fest in Los Angeles!

November 5, 2011 |  by  |  Free Film  |  No Comments

Once again, this time for the 25th anniversary, AFT Fest is offering free tickets to film screenings. The fest runs until Thursday Nov. 10.

How do you get the free tickets? Register online HERE or in person at the AFI box office at Hollywood & Highland. You can choose up to 8 tickets, limit 2 per screening, including a maximum of 2 galas.

Many of the tickets have or will be snapped up quickly, but don’t let that stop you! Since having a printed ticket does not guarantee you a seat, most of the films offer the chance to get free tix the day before or the day of the screening.

No matter which film you get tickets for, we cannot emphasize enough the need to get in line early! The closer you are to the door when it opens, the more likely it is that you’ll get a seat.

Enjoy the show!

It’s Scary, but Outdoor B-Movies and Bad Science is Free in L.A.!

June 25, 2010 |  by  |  Free Film  |  No Comments


Just when you thought things couldn’t get scarier, the Natural History Museum of L.A. County has dredged up a banner summer lineup of laughably bad horror movies meshed with light lectures on bad science for outdoor free fun on its south lawn and at the Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits.

The horrifically bad but horribly funny sci-fi flicks and horror film screenings start Saturday June 26 with the movie Encino Man (1992) and end Sunday, August 29 with Caveman (1981).

Each movie is introduced by museum experts who try to find common ground between real science and reel science. Plus, a spotlighted specimen from the Natural History Museum’s collection of B-movie memorabilia such as lobby cards, posters and movie props will be on display.

Science talks at 7:30PM, film showings at 8PM. Bring a picnic and requisite blanket; alcohol is permitted if you’re age 21+. No dogs allowed.

Movie Dates:
June 26: Encino Man: Page Museum at La Brea Tar Pits — Hancock Park Lawn
July 17: It Came from Beneath the Sea (1955): Natural History Museum — South Lawn
July 24: The Killer Shrews (1959): Natural History Museum — South Lawn
Aug 1: Gorilla at Large (1954): Natural History Museum — South Lawn
Aug 15: Gammera the Invincible (1966): Natural History Museum — South Lawn
Aug 29: Caveman (1981): Page Museum at La Brea Tar Pits — Hancock Park Lawn
