Lionsgate Live! A Night at the Movies Starts This Friday

Lionsgate is teaming up with Fandango, YouTube, and NATO to help furloughed movie theater employees. The studio is presenting Lionsgate Live! A Night at the Movies, a program of four Fridays of free movies streaming live on YouTube.

Beginning this Friday and continuing every Friday spanning four consecutive weeks, the studio will team with Fandango and YouTube to livestream four of Lionsgate's most popular library titles – the blockbuster The Hunger Games, the classic Dirty Dancing, the Academy Award®-winning La La Land, and the box office smash John Wick – on Lionsgate’s YouTube page and Fandango’s Movieclips YouTube page.

Lionsgate Live! A Night at the Movies will be hosted by Jamie Lee Curtis. Curtis will share her own movie memories as she is joined by special guest celebrities and YouTube personalities.

The free movies that will livestream on Fridays at 8:00pm CT are:

  • April 17 – “The Hunger Games”
  • April 24 – “Dirty Dancing”
  • May 1 – “La La Land”
  • May 8 – “John Wick” (age registration required)

More from the press release:

Most importantly, audiences everywhere will have the chance to join Lionsgate in showing support for the country’s temporarily jobless movie theater employees and how much we all appreciate and miss them. Lionsgate’s initial donation as well as the audience and partner donations throughout this event will benefit the Will Rogers Motion Picture Pioneers Foundation, an organization dedicated to helping workers throughout the motion picture industry, and will link to the Foundation’s charitable page so that viewers who are able can help as well. The Will Rogers Foundation is currently providing financial assistance to theater employees furloughed by the COVID-19 crisis.
