Driven by the communal longing of watching films in movie theaters, Canadian-American entertainment company Lionsgate will stream four of its most popular films for free on YouTube.
As reported by Variety, Lionsgate will stream The Hunger Games, La La Land, John Wick and Dirty Dancing on a program titled “Lionsgate Live! A Night at the Movies”, which will be hosted by actor Jamie Lee Curtis.
The show will start with The Hunger Games at 6 p.m. ET on Friday (4 a.m. Western Indonesian Time on Saturday). Dirty Dancing will be screened on April 24, La La Land will follow on May 1 and followed by John Wick on May 8. The John Wick screening will require age restriction.
The screening is free of charge, but Lionsgate urge viewers to make initial donation to Will Rogers Motion Picture Pioneers Foundation, an organization dedicated to helping workers impacted by COVID-19 in the motion picture industry.
The COVID-19 outbreak has forced public spaces to close and movie theaters are no exception. In Indonesia, giant cinema companies such as XXI and CGV as well as independent cinemas such as Kinosaurus and Kineforum closed their screens earlier last month. Film festivals have also been cancelled or postponed indefinitely to avoid large gatherings. (gis/wng)
