Stream Movies Like 'La La Land' and 'Dirty Dancing' for Free on Friday Nights (Video)

Figuring out what to do (or more importantly, what to watch) on Friday nights has become increasingly harder to do in the last few months.

While everyone is being encouraged to stay at home in order to combat the spread of coronavirus, one of the ever-present issues seems to be how to stay entertained when you can’t go out, have parties, or socialize in-person.

But if you’re a movie buff, you can find lots of movies and TV shows online. And now, Lionsgate Movies is about to make it way easier to find them — for free.

According to Time Out, Lionsgate has launched a new series of livestream events called Lionsgate Live! A Night At The Movies. This event series will livestream some of the company’s best loved movies on Friday nights in April and May. And as a bonus, the event will be hosted by the incomparable Jamie Lee Curtis as well as other “special guest celebrities and YouTube personalities,” according to a company statement, Time Out reported.

On Friday, April 17, the series will stream "The Hunger Games," in case you’re really craving a dystopian fantasy story. Classic Swayze film "Dirty Dancing" is slated for April 24, and Oscar-winning film "La La Land" is scheduled on May 1. Action flick "John Wick" is scheduled for May 8.

Each livestream will go up on Fridays at 9 p.m. ET on the Lionsgate Movies YouTube channel and the Fandango Movieclips YouTube Channel, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Audience participation for these events is encouraged, but you can also just enjoy a good movie as well.

In addition to providing some special, much-needed entertainment on a Friday night, Lionsgate is also encouraging people to donate to the Will Rogers Foundation, which is currently supporting theater professionals who have lost work during the coronavirus crisis.
