What we're about

Welcome to Free And Cheap Things in Boston (aka FACT-Boston)!

FACT-Boston has two primary objectives:

(1) inform people about free (or darn cheap) things to do in Boston that they might not otherwise know about, and

(2) help people find others to do those things with, in case they don't feel like doing them alone.

We'll find fun things to do that are either free or cost no more than $10. And we'll make some new friends in the process!

Here's to finding many FACTs (Free And Cheap Things) in Boston!

130 Cambridgepark Dr

Howdy folks, 'Parasite (Korean: 기생충; Hanja: 寄生蟲; RR: Gisaengchung) is a 2019 South Korean dark comedy thriller film directed by Bong Joon-ho. The film stars Song Kang-ho, Lee Sun-kyun, Cho Yeo-jeong, Choi Woo-shik and Park So-dam. Parasite had its world premiere at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival on 21 May 2019, where it won the Palme d'Or, becoming the first Korean film to receive the award and the first film to win with a unanimous vote since 2013's Blue Is the Warmest Colour. It was selected as the South Korean entry for Best International Feature Film at the 92nd Academy Awards.'(Wikipedia) I'll have beers, non-alcoholic drinks, and coffee/tea. We can order foods from grubhub, if we get hungry. DATE: Sunday, February 23rd at 2:30 PM. TIME: 2:30pm/132 MInutes LOCATION: 130 Cambridgepark Drive - Apt. 427 TRAILER: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SEUXfv87Wpk SYNOPSIS: “Parasite,” his first fully Korean-made film since 2009’s mesmeric maternal-murder mystery “Mother,” follows a poor but enterprising clan who ingratiate themselves into the lives of a wealthy family with darkly comic and tragic results. In his fourth film with director Bong, Song Kang Ho plays Ki-taek, the downtrodden patriarch of the Kim family. Neither he, his former shot put-champ wife, Chung-sook (Jang Hye Jin) or their grown children, Ki-woo (Choi Woo Shik) and Ki-jung (Park So Dam) can land a steady job; they share a cramped sub-basement apartment at the geographical and metaphorical rock-bottom of town. Their lives take a dramatic turn when Ki-woo gets a gig as a private tutor to the snobbishly rich Park family, proceeding to scam all the Kims into gainful employ in the moneyed household on a hill.(LA Times) PARKING: You're probably best off just taking the MBTA to Alewife. I'm only a 3-5 minute walk away from there. But if you drive, we have street parking, and on Sunday's it's not going to be difficult at all. We appreciate any and all donations so we can continue to offer more events.
