Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

After this dismally rainy, grey weekend, we're starting to forget why we love South Florida.

A vitamin D deficiency is starting to set in and Monday mornings make optimists of none of us.

Hopefully the weekend wasn't a total loss and you scored an objet d'art in the Grove or some free champagne at the boat show. Or got wasted while watching the season finale of Downton Abbey. Whatever.

Luckily, there's some free stuff to look forward to this week, so don't fall into the depths of work-week depression just yet.

Check out this week's budget-friendly film screenings, arts events, and more after the jump.


  • Beasts of the Southern Wild at SoundScape: Undoubtedly you've heard your girlfriend, second cousin, and the cashier at your dry cleaners rave about this flick. Might as well finally see it, and on a 7,000-foot screen, no less.


  • Locust Roundtable Discussion: Talking about Beyonce's wardrobe and the latest episode of How I Met Your Mother gets old after awhile. Give your brain a little boost and discuss Death, Danger, Detritus with an artsy, intellectual crowd.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
