Lionsgate launch 'Lionsgate Live! A Night at the Movies'
If like us you are missing your weekly trip to the cinema and eating your body weight in popcorn, Lionsgate has come up with a fantastic solution to ensure you are still able to enjoy some kind of cinematic experience while in quarantine.
Lionsgate UK will be streaming four films each Saturday throughout May for free as part of it’s ‘Lionsgate Live! A Night at the Movies’ experience.
As well as this, the film company will be supporting NHS Charities Together COVID-19 Urgent Appeal and The Film and TV Charity COVID-19 Emergency Response.
Starting this Saturday, May 2nd, the BAFTA award winning film La La Land will be available to watch on Lionsgate’s YouTube channel, followed by Eddie the Eagle on May 9, Bend it Like Beckham on May 16 and The Hunger Games on May 23.
Adding to the fun will be an array of celebrity hosts introducing the films including Edith Bowman, Keith Lemon, Jack Whitehall and Jonathan Ross.
Still missing that popcorn? Lionsgate UK have teamed up with Joe & Seph’s gourmet popcorn who have created three exclusive bundles for the month long event.
The company will be giving ‘Lionsgate Live! A Night at the Movies’ watchers 10% off its bundles as well as having the popcorn delivered to their doorstep.
Zygi Kamasa, CEO Lionsgate UK spoke about the month-long film fun saying:
Although there is nothing quite like watching a film on the big screen, Lionsgate Live! is a great chance for the UK to come together and celebrate the cinematic experience from home.
