Three things to do for free in Denver this week, July 28-31

We're nearing the end of the month, and your bank account could be running on empty. But that doesn't mean the rest of July won't be full of fun. You can take in a movie, be a fanatic or just hear some bands -- all for free in Denver this week.

The online Westword calendar has a complete listing of events around town, no matter what their admission price; you can tell us about more free events in the comments section below.

The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters at Central Library (Tuesday, free)

Part of the library's Classic Film Documentaries series, this powerful doc will take you to the underground, insane world of video-game arcade players. It tells quite the tale of good and evil, so be ready for some lively discussion after the showing.

Broncos Practice at Sports Authority Field at Mile High (Wednesday, free) It's been six months since we last saw the Broncos in action. That last game was far from super, but it's time to forgive and forget -- so come show your support at this free practice. Since the Dove Valley facility is undergoing renovations, this is a chance for die-hard teams to catch the team before the season starts.

Summer on the Plaza at 1801 California (Wednesday, free)
