A Cheapster’s Weekend: April 2 – 4


Free Screening of Amelie: 212 Cafe in Venice, which is one of my favorite bohemian java hangs on the Westside, is screening the beloved French romantic tale Amelie. It’s the story of a shy, lonely waitress who decides to change the lives of those around her for the better. The film stars Audrey Tatou as the cutesy waitress, little land gnomes and a whimsical Montmarte. Free movie? Oui oui! I haven’t seen this film since it came out back in 2001, but remember how enjoyable it is. Not to mention a real piece of cinematic eye candy.

Time: 8:45 p.m.

212 Pier | 212 Pier Ave. Santa Monica, CA | 310.314.5275

Free in-store at Vacation: The record store Vacation Vinyl is hosting a free show (more…)
