Beginning on Saturday 2nd May and continuing every Saturday for four consecutive weeks, Lionsgate UK will Livestream four of its most popular theatrical releases free to audiences for a number of COVID-19 charities.
Each film shown as part of Lionsgate Live! A Night at the Movies will be presented by a unique celebrity host, including Edith Bowman, Keith Lemon, Jack Whitehall and Jonathan Ross. Every Saturday the event will feature special programming and interactive opportunities for fans, such as surprise guest appearances, real-time fan chats via YouTube Live, live-tweeting @LionsgateUK and partners, costume contests, giveaways, and more.
The free movies that will Livestream on Saturdays at 6.00pm BST are:
May 2 – “La La Land”
May 9 – “Eddie The Eagle”
May 16 – “Bend It Like Beckham”
May 23 – “The Hunger Games”
Most importantly, audiences everywhere will have the chance to join Lionsgate UK in helping the NHS Charities Together COVID-19 Urgent Appeal, who are currently supporting NHS staff and volunteers caring for COVID-19 patients, and The Film and TV Charity COVID-19 Emergency Response, supporting the people behind the scenes who bring these stories to our screens.
To present the live movie event, Lionsgate UK is joining with some of its most important exhibition partners, including Cineworld, Odeon, Showcase, Empire, The Light, Picturehouse, Everyman, Curzon, The Industry Trust and many other Independent Cinemas across the country. And what’s a movie night without popcorn? Joe & Seph’s, the award-winning family business with over 50 gourmet popcorn flavours, is celebrating Lionsgate UK’s new initiative by creating three exclusive Gourmet Popcorn Bundles, which movie fans can have delivered to their door ready for each Saturday night streaming session, and enjoy 10% off.
So get your dancing shoes on with ‘La La Land’, fly like an eagle with ‘Eddie The Eagle‘, scrub up your ball skills for ‘Bend It Like Beckham’ and join the fight with ‘The Hunger Games’.
