Memphis Movies In May: A Celebration of Our City’s Cinema

Posted by Holly Whitfield | April 24th 2019 1000 0

One thing I noticed when I first moved here a million years ago is that Memphians love to brag about the movies filmed here. Everyone has a cousin who was an extra in The Firm, you all point out where some scene in Walk The Line was filmed, and we all brag endlessly about Hustle & Flow.

Well, you all will love what Memphis In May and Indie Memphis have teamed up for this May: a series of Memphis movies showing at local theaters. They’re all on Wednesdays and are $10, except for the Memphis Women In Film short film screening, which is on a Tuesday and is pay-what-you-can.

Most of these have adult content, so parented be cautioned.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
