Posted By on Thu, Jul 3, 2014 at 3:43 PM

Going out in Charlotte doesn't have to be expensive. In fact, to prove that statement, we've compiled a list of cheap - $10 or less - things to do in the Q.C. this weekend. These events may vary, but they're all entertaining and they won't break your bank (piggy banks excluded).

4th of July Festival at U.S. National Whitewater Center, 4th of July Pig Pickin' in Plaza Midwood, and other Independence Day celebrations.

A Passage to India at ImaginOn: The film series Made in 1984: Hollywood Movies from 30 Years Ago continues with a screening of A Passage to India, the final movie from the legendary David Lean. Based on E.M. Forster’s novel, this study of culture clashes examines the relationship between an Indian doctor (Victor Banerjee) and two Englishwomen (Judy Davis and Peggy Ashcroft). Nominated for 11 Academy Awards, this won for Best Supporting Actress (Ashcroft) and Best Original Score. Free admission. July 5, 2 p.m. ImaginOn's Wells Fargo Playhouse, 300 E. 7th St.
