- Lionsgate will be teaming up with YouTube to show free movies on Friday nights.
Lionsgate is teaming up with YouTube and also Fandango and Nato to launch “Lionsgate Live! A Night at the Movies.” For four consecutive Friday nights, Lionsgate’s YouTube page and Fandango’s Movieclips YouTube page will live-stream some of Lionsgate’s most popular movies.
The event will also serve as a fundraiser to benefit the Will Rogers Motion Picture Pioneers Foundation, which is dedicated to helping workers in the motion picture industry. They will provide financial assistance to the theater employees who are furloughed by the COVID-19 crisis. Lionsgate will provide the initial donation, as well as the partners in this event, but the audience will be provided the link to the Foundation’s charitable page for those who want to help as well.
AMC, Regal, and Cinemark will also be joining Lionsgate for the movie event. Popcornopolis will be offering audiences a night offer which 10% of the proceeds will be donated to the Will Rogers Motion Picture Pioneers Foundation. SnackNation will curate a movie-themes snack box at a special price and free shipping.
“Lionsgate Live! A Night at the Movies” will be hosted by Jamie Lee Curtis who will share her own memories as well as talk with special celebrity guests and YouTube personalities. Audiences will have the change to engage in real-time fan chats via YouTube Live, live-tweeting, and shared fan engagements in-show like movie trivia, and movie-themed challenges.
“Lionsgate Live! A Night at the Movies” will stream Fridays at 6:00pm PT/9:00pm ET.
