  1. My university shows movies in one of its large lecture halls many weekends throughout the school year. They are generally new-to-DVD releases. It’s free for students and $1 for everyone else and it feels almost exactly the same as being in a movie theater except more relaxed. My college did the same thing, although I never saw non-students there. I bet a lot of universities do something similar and people living nearby could come if they just check out the school’s events calendar.

    Movies on the lawn are also great during the summer and are either free or quite inexpensive. My community has about five different venues that do it so there’s lots of choices.
