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.

We will meet to talk about the film at 7 pm on Friday evenings via Zoom. 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.
