Coming Attraction: LA Film Festival Hosts Free Screenings

The LA Film Festival is back, kicking off this year's festivities today. Screenings will be held at ArcLight Cinemas in both Hollywood and Culver City.

While most of the screenings require passes or tickets, there will be a selection of free screenings throughout the festival.

First up, the original Ivan Reitman-directed "Ghostbusters," a nice option to show the kiddos before the reboot hits theaters later this summer.

The movie will screen June 3 at 8 p.m. at FIGat7th.

From the LA Film Fest site: After a team of underdog scientists lose their cushy positions at a university in New York City, they set out on their own and become “ghostbusters,” waging a high-tech battle with supernatural spirits taking up residency in NYC.  

This event is free to the public, no ticket or pass required, on a space available basis.  


735 S Figueroa St, Los Angeles, CA 90017 
There are 500 parking spaces conveniently located at the 945 8th Street parking structure adjacent to the FIGat7th Retail Center. 
Entrances to the parking structure are located on both 7th and 8th Streets.  The charge is $5 after 4:00 pm weekdays and all day Saturday. Also accessible via Metro & Dash.

"Shrek" (Photo credit: LA Film Festival)
Next up is that family favorite "Shrek," which will screen June 4 at 11 a.m. at the ArcLight Culver City.

From the site: Mike Myers is the voice of Shrek, a cynical, no-nonsense ogre whose precious solitude is shattered when his swamp is overrun by annoying fairytale creatures who have been banished by the evil Lord Farquaad. Determined to save their home—not to mention his own—Shrek cuts a deal with Farquaad and sets out to rescue the beautiful Princess Fiona to be Farquaad’s bride. Rescuing the Princess from a fire-breathing dragon may prove the least of their problems when the deep, dark secret she has been keeping is revealed. The film also stars the voices of Eddie Murphy as Shrek’s Donkey sidekick, Cameron Diaz as Princess Fiona and John Lithgow as the evil Lord Farquaad.

"Independence Day" (Photo credit: LA Film Festival)
Another family fave (for families with older kids) is "Independence Day," starring a young Will Smith. This will definitely get the fam fired up before the 4th of July!

The film screens June 4 at 8 p.m. at FIGat7th.

From the site: When massive spaceships appear in Earth’s skies and blast destructive beams of fire down on cities all over the planet, a determined band of survivors must unite for one last strike against the invaders before it’s the end of mankind.
