Ad for the Disney movie "Home"Going out to see a new movie is expensive these days. Unless you're hitting a matinee, tickets cost more than $9 each, and refreshments could easily run you another $10, even if you're only getting a large soda and popcorn. Thankfully, the last drive-in movie theater in Arizona, the West Wind Glendale Drive-In, offers a singular moviegoing experience on Thursday, August 27, and the price is right: It's free.

That's right – all movies are free to everyone on this evening. There will be four double-features of two films, as follows:

Furious 7 (8:45 p.m.) with Avengers: Age of Ultron (10:45 p.m.)
Avengers: Age of Ultron (8 p.m.) with Furious 7 (10:45 p.m.)
Pitch Perfect 2 (8 p.m.) with Home (10:20 p.m.)
Home (8 p.m.) with Pitch Perfect 2 (10 p.m.)

So bring a chair and some refreshments (more savings!), or stop by the old-school octagon-shaped concessions stand, and enjoy some celluloid under the stars.
