A Night at the Movies to raise money for cinema workers.Lionsgate, in conjunction with Fandango, YouTube and the National Association of Theatre Owners, is launching Lionsgate Live! A Night at the Movies, a four-consecutive Friday night live-stream of movies which kicks off tonight with The Hunger Games on the distributor’s YouTube page and Fandango’s Movieclips YouTube page.

Lionsgate’s initial donation as well as the audience and partner donations throughout this event will benefit the Will Rogers Motion Picture Pioneers Foundation, which is dedicated to helping workers throughout the motion picture industry, and will link to the Foundation’s charitable page so that viewers who are able can help as well.

The Will Rogers Foundation is currently providing financial assistance to theatre employees furloughed by the COVID-19 crisis. The Lionsgate Live movies will stream Fridays at 6:00 pm on the West Coast and 9:00 pm on the East Coast.

Here is the lineup:

April 17 – The Hunger Games

April 24 – Dirty Dancing

May 1 – La La Land

May 8 – John Wick (age registration required)
