You can’t have a movie night without popcorn! Join us for a night at the movies while remaining #safeathome benefitting the Will Rogers Motion Picture Pioneers Foundation. Popcornopolis is proud to partner with Lionsgate as they honor the communal experience of watching movies in movie theaters and support the people who make those places great with a special program that reminds everyone how much we love going to the cinema. The studio is presenting Lionsgate Live! A Night at the Movies, a program of four Fridays of free movies streaming live on YouTube.
Kicking off Friday April, 14 and continuing every Friday spanning four consecutive weeks at 6:00pm PT/9:00pm ET, the studio will team with Fandango and YouTube to livestream four of the most popular Lionsgate library titles:
April 17 – "The Hunger Games"
April 24 – "Dirty Dancing"
May 1 – "La La Land"
May 8 – "John Wick" (age registration required)
Throughout the livestream, enjoy surprise guest appearances along with exclusive Popcornopolis giveaways and promotions!
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. Each week's night at the movies 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.
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 Motion Picture Pioneers Foundation is currently providing financial assistance to theater employees furloughed by the COVID-19 crisis.
