Why does it look like there are so many of the same event?
An event displays once for each listed show time. If you see an event more than once, that means it happens multiple times.
How can I see if an event has multiple show dates?
Events with multiple show dates or times will be identified as a “Recurring Event” and have a link to “See All” dates and times.
How can I see only free events?
See a list of all free events by clicking the block next to “Only Show Free Events,” then click the “Search Events” button to activate your search. The event list will then display all free events.
