Free Movies!

Even cheapskates want to have a little fun on their Friday nights, so why not host a movie night party this weekend? It doesn't have to be expensive.

How to do it: Skip Blockbuster's rental fees and go straight to your public library. Yes, your public library. Believe it or not, libraries have been busy transforming themselves from out-dated stacks of books to multimedia hangouts catering to a new kind of user - you. Most libraries offer free Internet access and new material for borrowing like music Cd's, books-on-tape and (you guessed it) movies.

And I'm not just talking about educational movies here. True, some libraries might only have a limited collection of entertainment films, but most are broadening their collections. At the very least, you can probably find a good selection of films based on novels as it's easier for librarians to justify spending money on these. Many great films were based on novels and are likely to be at your public library waiting for you to check them out. Think Gone with the Wind, Pride & Prejudice and James Bond. Imagine paying to rent Casino Royale when you could have borrowed the DVD from your public library for free!

So head to your public library and send out the invitations! Also, check back here, because I'll be posting tips for cheep movie night snacks later in the week!

Save to del.icio.us
