Theaters may be closed because of the coronavirus, but that doesn’t mean you can’t see a movie.

So grab some popcorn and turn out the lights as Lionsgate Films will stream one of the company’s hits for free on YouTube starting this week, Variety reported.

It’s being called “Lionsgate Live! A Night at the Movies.”

On Friday, the company will show “The Hunger Games” starting at 6 p.m. ET.

“Lionsgate Live!” will be hosted by Jamie Lee Curtis. She will be joined by other celebrities, to share movie memories. There will also be interactive aspects like real-time chats, live-tweeting and trivia, Deadline reported.

The series will run for the next four weeks with each week bringing a different classic film, Variety reported.

“The Hunger Games” will be followed by “Dirty Dancing” on April 24, “La La Land” on May 1, and “John Wick” on May 8. That movie will make viewers register and confirm their age, according to Variety.


Lionsgate will also be donating to the Will Rogers Motion Picture Pioneers Foundation, a group that is helping workers from the motion picture industry who are impacted by the pandemic. Viewers will be encouraged to donate as well, Deadline reported.
