Friday Freebies

Recipe for a cheap date tonight:

Start off at FringeFriday, held in the new Fringe Building at 719 E. St. Clair. Complementary hors d’oeuvres start at 5:30 followed by a 6:15 showcase including sketch comedy group Three Dollar Bill Comedy Co. and excerpts from the Butler U. student production of “Dear Katrina, I Saw You on TV,” and Theatre Within’s production of David Mamet’s “Oleanna.” Plus a performance by slam poet Matthew Davis.

Next, shoot across town for a 9:30 screening of “Royal Wedding.”

Georgetown Stadium 14 Cinemas–an underappreciated Lafayette Square spot noted for mixing Bollywood movies with its more traditional Hollywood fare–is celebrating its fourth anniversary with an ecclectic group of free film offerings. Today these are:

1:00 PM “The Crawling Eye” (1958) 84 min (Forrest Tucker)

3:00 PM “The Cars That Ate Paris” (1976) 74 min

5:00 PM “Mysterious Island” (1961 111 min.

7:30 PM “Brain Dead” (2008) (R) 95 min (This one is a premiere.)

9:30 PM “Royal Wedding” (1951) 93 min (Fred Astaire/Jane Powell)

How’s that for range?

The rest of the week brings the likes of 1959’s “House on Haunted Hill,” 1960’s “Little Shop of Horrors,” and 1947’s “The Angel and the Badman.” Call 291-3456 for more information.
