5 things to do under $5 Feb. 2-8

1 A Raisin in the Sun: The Capitol Classics Film Series at Clearwater's Capitol Theatre started off the year with $5 ticket prices for its screenings of classic gems and even threw in a matinee at 3 p.m. and an evening show at 7. This week, you can see Sidney Poitier's groundbreaking 1961 film about a struggling African-American family that comes into some money. See it Tuesday at the historic theater, 405 Cleveland St., Clearwater.

2Yoga Day Tampa Bay: Saturday you can find free or reduced-priced yoga classes at a number of studios in the Tampa Bay area, including Wendy Fit Yoga & Pilates, 13974 W Hillsborough Ave. in Tampa; White Orchid Yoga, 907 S Fort Harrison Ave. in Clearwater; and the Longhouse on 49th Street 2309 49th Street S in Gulfport. For a complete list, see and click on Events.

3Tarpon Springs Greek Festival: It always feels like a Greek festival in the home of the sponge-diving Greek fishing community, but this weekend there's some added opa! St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Cathedral Community Center, 348 N Pinellas Ave. in Tarpon Springs, will have a family-style Greek celebration with food, homemade pastries, specialty shops, live Greek music and children's activities. It's noon to 10 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Free.

4Sea Monsters: This is the last week to catch the traveling Sea Monsters exhibit on display in McGough Nature Park, 11901 146th St. N, Largo. The exhibit, which runs through Monday, shows how venom, ultra vision, jaws and glow-in-the-dark are just a few of the fascinating "monster" characteristics of some sea animals. This interactive exhibit explains how they are adaptations to extreme underwater environments. Open during nature center hours weekdays, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Free.

5$2 Target Tuesday: It's the first Tuesday of the month, so that means you get cheap admission to the Glazer Children's Museum this Tuesday, just $2 for everyone from 2 to 7 p.m. The museum is in Tampa's Curtis Hixon Park, 110 W Gasparilla Plaza.
