Do you love movies? I do! And nothing’s better than FREE movies.
Have you been to a movie theater lately? You can pay $10 or more just to get in the door! I joined AMC Stubs, but I still have to pay $19.95 a month. Ditto with Netflix. Here’s an option for FREE movies: Clark County Library District.
My favorite place to see movies is at the Clark County Library. There is a FREE movie in its Las Vegas Strip-like amphitheater at least twice a week. They always start at 2. Tomorrow’s movie is Crazy Rich Asians in honor of Chinese New Year.
If you prefer to see BlacKkKlansman, well that’s at the Green Valley Library. First Man is at the Summerlin Library.
Only interested in the classics? Then wait until Tuesday for I Married an Angel, which was a big hit in 1942, shown at the Clark County Library.
And the libraries are a GREAT place to see live theater and listen to live music. For example, tonight at 7 the O Sole Trio Live in Concert is at the Clark County Library. The trio of Erin Shields, Guiseepe Spoleini and David Shenton have performed at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. Not too shabby!
Tonight’s program features international, ooey, gooey love songs from “O Sole Mio” to “Open Arms“, one of my favorite Journey hits, after “Separate Ways”, which is kind of a love song.
I did say this show was FREE, right?
If drama is more your thing after all that you’ve been through this week at work, head out to the West Las Vegas Library for “No Place To Be Somebody” by Charles Gordone. The playwright calls this a “black black comedy” in honor of African American History & Heritage Month. The plot: a black bartender in New York City tries to outwit a white mobster syndicate.
This play won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1970. Gordone was the first African American to win a Pulitzer. Not too shabby for a local library!
I’ve seen shows at both Clark County and Summerlin libraries. Their facilities rival Broadway’s. Noted, that’s not sayin’ much since most of the original Broadway Theaters were built in the 1910s. (The Lunt-Fontanne Theatre on West 46th Street was built in 1910). My point: These Clark County Library auditoriums are wonderful places for shows.
Oh and you don’t need a library card either to attend any of these performances.
Have a great week-end, Las Vegas.
