Gather round the computer screen or smart t.v. on Friday nights to watch (or rewatch) movies streamed LIVE via YouTube.
Lionsgate has teamed up with YouTube and Fandango to honor the communal experience of watching movies in theaters and to support the theater workers who make those experiences possible.
Lionsgate Live is “a star-studded celebration of the theatrical film-going experience hosted by Jamie Lee Curtis…” and will include four of Lionsgate’s most popular movies.
The free movies will be streamed via YouTube Live every Friday night at 8 p.m. CST. from April 17 to May 8.
Each week’s free movie event will feature special programming and interactive opportunities for fans, like real-time fan chats via YouTube Live, live tweeting @Lionsgate and partners, and shared fan engagement opportunities in-show, including movie trivia, movie-themed challenges, and more.
Here’s the schedule of movies that will be playing:
- April 17 The Hunger Games
- April 24 Dirty Dancing
- May 1 La La Land
- May 8 John Wick
The free movie event is a fundraiser for the Will Rogers Motion Picture Pioneers Foundation, which is currently providing financial assistance to theater employees who have recently found themselves out of a job.
