Once upon a time in 2010, it was summer in Atlanta. During this particular summer, the powers-that-be decided it would be a great idea to show an outdoor movie at Piedmont Park, echoing the traditions of years past. Many members of the public thought it was great, too. Then it devolved into a small-scale riot. There were also gunshots. The next year brought more shootings. Movies are not played at Piedmont Park anymore. But buck up, child-toting cinephile — all that's ancient history, and it doesn't mean there's nowhere to see a cheap outdoor flick in the ATL this summer! The list below isn't exhaustive (there are way more options OTP), but it's a place to start. Know of other offerings? Please post in the comments. Free movies this summer range from "Frozen" to "American Psycho" and "Wolf of Wall Street." Just kidding.
