S'NUFF film


Prepare to be rewarded, loyal readers (aka Mom and that creepy guy I used to sit next to in English class). I’m telling you where you can see the hit movie Grease for absolutely, 100-percent free. No, smart-ass, not TBS, TCM, or ABC Family any given three nights of the week. It’s playing at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, September 4, at HemisFair Park (200 S. Alamo), as part of the triumphantly resurrected Slab Cinema series. Slab (with sponsorship from the City) will be screening popular classics every Thursday this month. In October, Slab plans to screen scary movies, including the silent-era knicker-soiler Nosferatu. And in my continued efforts to get 50 percent of you S’Nuff fans laid (stop reading, Mom) don’t miss the sure-thing free date night September 18, when ’80s cover band the Maybe Laterz plays before a sexy dusk screening of Hughes rom-com Sixteen Candles. Jake Ryan is nature’s K-Y, after all.

Speaking of something else entirely (and not a minute too soon) the European Film Festival is also offering free movies, of the English-subtitled persuasion, at Santikos Palladium (17703 IH 10 West) September 8-11. Get your showtimes at — although I think most of us go to the talking-picture shows to avoid reading. Am I right, folks?
