At $11.50 a ticket, going to the movies isn’t a very budget friendly activity, especially for families or students. Luckily, if you’re in Boston this summer you can satisfy your theater cravings for free with weekly outdoor films right in the city! The Boston Harbor Hotel is showing both classic films and newer movies on its terrace, beginning each Friday at sunset. The series kicked off last week, and continues until the last weekend of summer (August 31).
