Online Beacon Film Club

The intention for this group is to replace a night out at the theatre with the convenience of a shared movie experience from our own homes. Similar to the book club, the procedure is to view the film in advance, and then come to a Zoom meeting to chat about it.

The films selected are all available from YouTube for a rental fee (free up to $6.99). They may also be available for streaming from other internet sources, so if you have a subscription to a streaming service, do check there first. To rent a film from YouTube, just search for the title in YouTube and look for the video that has a blue “Buy or Rent” box next to it.

For the months of January and February, we will meet on zoom on first and third Fridays at 7pm via Zoom. We will also plan to watch films at the theatre (dates and times to be determined). Please email Marilyn Medén (check your hard copy of the directory) for Zoom meeting details.

Register in advance for this meeting. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

As well as our zoom meetings, we will be planning for some in person theatre events.
