Free Friday: Movie in the Park and Turkish Tastings from Kebab House

Each week we tell viewers what they can get for free. This week's free list: 1) Winter Film Festival 2) Mediterranean Kebab House (Turkish) Tasting

There's another reason to get you outside to enjoy this year's mild winter. The Winter Film Festival returns to Citi Pond for four Monday nights beginning January 23. Take a peek at the schedule below, and start planning your evening. There are several viewing options to choose from:

Bring a blanket and snuggle up on the deck with some hot cocoa.

Grab a table at Celsius for dinner and a movie.

Go for a spin around the rink while you watch the film. (But please save the popcorn snack for after your laps!)
