More free concerts, bargain movies

Here’s a new free outdoor concert series:

There’s soft jazz and acoustic music every Saturday night from 6-9 p.m. around the fountains at The Fountains Shopping Center, at the corner of Ardrey Kell and Tom Short Roads in south Charlotte. (I’ll add some contact info as soon as I get it from them).

This adds to my earlier list. (And here’s the last update). If you’re using these lists, check the dates – they were compiled back in May.

One of the great things about the Charlotte region is the fact that our balmy climate allows us to have free outdoor events for most of the year. Live music is available outdoors virtually every week between April and October.

If music isn’t your thing, we’ve got plenty of free movie spots too. Check out this link for them, and scroll down here for one more update.

Another bargain movie tidbit for Harry Potter fans: the folks at AMC Concord Mills 24 theater got in touch to let me know they’re running the two most recent Potter films, "Prisoner of Azkaban" and "Goblet of Fire," through Tuesday July 10. Admission is $6 all day (compared to $9 for regular adult admission). If you’re planning to line up Tuesday for the premiere of the latest, "Order of the Phoenix," you can buy tickets for a mini-marathon of "Azkaban" at 5:55, "Goblet" at 8:50 and the "Phoenix" premiere at 12:01 a.m.

And if those aren’t highbrow enough, here’s a link to our earlier list of other free museums and cultural events.

As I’ve said before, you’ve got no excuse to say you’re bored around here – if you are, you just aren’t trying!

Speaking of movies - Do you know of a theatre that shows movies during the week for parents with small kids? I know other large cities have them - often one in the morning, one during a weeknight evening (early). I've had no luck finding one.

Yes, Anonymous 4:53. Please follow the links in the post - several of the listings are for theaters having free kid-friendly screenings on weekdays. Most Regal cinemas and AMC Theatres have them, as well as the Arboretum (the other Consolidated theaters charge $1).
