Free Movies Every Saturday in October at El Paso International Museum of Art
As the weather begins to cool, enjoy a relatively cheap kickback watching a movie on a Saturday afternoon at the International Museum of Art.
Not only is the flick free to see, admission to the museum is free as well. The movies, all carefully curated family favorites and timeless classics, are screened in the beautiful 168 seat auditorium inside the historic Henry Trost building the International Museum of Art calls home.
There's going to be a free movie every Saturday afternoon but one in October, each hosted by life long film fan, historian and collector Jay Duncan in association with Sunset Film Society. This month, in observance of the Halloween season, Duncan offers four noteworthy films that have stood the test of time as classics in the suspense genre.
Showtime is approximately 2:00 p.m. Theater popcorn, drinks, candy and snacks will be available for purchase.
