The only thing better than a classic movie is a free classic movie. Turner Classic Movies agrees, because the basic-cable channel is sending hosts Robert Osborne and Ben Mankiewicz across the country with a stash of primo films on the TCM Road to Hollywood Tour — and these films will be screened for free in select areas. St. Louis not only gets Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds — for free, mind you — but Mankiewicz will be joined by Tippi Hedren for the evening. The TCM Road to Hollywood Tour hits the Hi-Pointe Theatre (1005 McCausland Avenue; 314-995-6273 or www.landmarktheatres.com) at 7:30 p.m. this evening. Visit www.tcm.com /roadtohollywood/index.html for your free downloadable pass, which is good for two people. Seating is first-come, first-served and not guaranteed, so arrive early for your best chance at seats.
