Amy’s Pile: Movies Set For Free YouTube Showings
Everyone is trying to find ways to pass the time right now while being stuck in quarantine due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Film company Lionsgate wanted to do their part in helping bring some light to the difficult times. They announced they will stream "The Hunger Games," "La La Land," "John Wick," and "Dirty Dancing" for free on YouTube over the next four Friday nights. They're calling it "Lionsgate Live! A Night at the Movies" to honor the communal experience of watching films in movie theaters and supporting those who make those places great.
The movie series will be hosted by Jamie Lee Curtis and she will be joined by celebrities and YouTube personalities as they share movie memories. Lionsgate will also make an initial donation to the Will Rogers Motion Picture Pioneers Foundation, an organization dedicated to helping workers impacted by coronavirus in the motion picture industry.
The series kicks off with "Hunger Games" at 6/5 p.m. ET this Friday. Then the series will continue with "Dirty Dancing" on April 24th, "La La Land" on May 1st, and "John Wick" on May 8th.
