Memphis Movies In May: A Celebration of Our City’s Cinema
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.
Here’s the schedule. Read more here.
