BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The price of a movie these days can really take its toll on your wallet -- especially if you have kids.
I've heard from a lot of Ways 2 Save viewers eager to find a work around to get you to the big screen.
Today, a solution in theaters and online.
As usual, I'll be sending out more daily deals after the morning show via Twitter. CLICK HERE
Gofobo is a fantastic way to not on only narrow down free movie screenings throughout our viewing area, but it also connects you with other movie lovers in our awesome community.
This free website is a way to see movies for free before anyone else, keep track of your favorite stars and even win prizes fast.
CLICK HERE and use the "screening" tab on the homepage to search for screenings of upcoming movies in your area. Many screening are "private," i.e. reserved for a promotional partner, but there are often free openings so that members of the Gofobo community can RSVP to attend.
It takes a few seconds to create a Gofobo account, which is free, and also a great way to follow your favorite movies and actors.
While you won't necessarily find a movie you'll love every week, Gofobo puts flicks at your fingertips that you wouldn't otherwise know about.
At the time this article was written, there were a couple of solid options in our area this week. If this sells out due to all of today's Ways 2 Save traffic, check back in a few days.
On the topic of free, there's another great way to watch free movies online. Crackle is one other bookmark I want to push your way for free flicks online or via streaming to a smartphone or Internet-connected TV. Crackle lets you watch movies for free, completely uncut, and it's legal.
While Crackle's collection of 300 movies won't compete with Netflix, it's often updated, includes movies that aren't available via streaming from Netflix (like "Step Brothers" for example) and is zero dollars.
You can't expect anything that's free to be perfect, but Crackle offers hours of entertainment without any strings attached. CLICK HERE
And as a side-note, YouTube also has a small collection of free movies that I wasn't extremely impressed with, but again, free is free.
