We can’t go to the movie theater, but we can still enjoy the movie-watching experience. One major studio has decided to come up with a unique way for fans to experience recent films. Lionsgate will host “Lionsgate Live! A Night at the Movies”. This will be a new program that will occur every Friday for the next four weeks on Youtube. Free movies will stream live and it will take place on Lionsgate’s YouTube page and Fandango’s Movieclips page.
The Hunger Games will begin on April 17th and the next three films will be Dirty Dancing, La La Land, and John Wick. Jaime Lee Curtis will host Lionsgate Live! Other celebrities and YouTube personalities will join Curtis as they express their memories of each film released. There will also be interactive moments for the fans watching, which Joe Drake, the chairman of the Lionsgate Motion Picture Group; expanded on:
“There’s nothing that will replace the magic of seeing a movie together with your fellow moviegoers in a theater on a big screen, but this is a chance for America to come together to recreate the experience. This is a great chance to show the country’s theatrical employees how much we miss going to their theaters and how much we support them. Jamie Lee Curtis – a woman who literally grew up with the movies and movie theaters – is one of the world’s biggest movie fans, so it’s a real thrill that she’ll be our host for this event. Let’s have some fun watching some classic movies together at home while celebrating moviegoing!”
Lionsgate has made a donation to the Will Rogers Motion Picture Pioneers Foundation, which is an organization that is dedicated to helping those who work in the film industry. This will help those who are temporarily jobless due to the movie theaters being shut down.
Here is the schedule:
April 17 – “The Hunger Games”
April 24 – “Dirty Dancing”
May 1 – “La La Land”
May 8 – “John Wick” (age registration required)
These movies will stream free on Fridays at 6:00 pm PT/9:00 pm ET.
