The Film Club is going virtual, while we wait out the Covid-19 emergency. Even if we're locked in at home, we can still enjoy great cinema together, socialize and have a good discussion about it. In fact the options are even more rich and varied than before. We can choose between the latest releases, great classics, good films that we missed when they opened, and theater plays.
Our events now consist in choosing a movie and watching it at the same time in the comfort of our homes. We then discuss it by chatting either on the comments section of the event or using other social media platforms.
We choose films (and sometimes plays) from various streaming services: BFI, Mubi, the iPlayer, Netflix, the regular TV channels, the National Theatre, the Globe Theatre. Some of these have special offers during this period, especially if you're a Broadway member. Like when we go to a cinema theater (you have to buy your own ticket), it is up to single members to rent or get a subscription to the relevant streaming service.
Let's keep this going and enjoy great cinema together.
