Craving something to do on Friday night—or hell, the next four Friday nights? You're in luck, as Lionsgate just announced the launch of Lionsgate Live!, in which the entertainment company will, yes, live-stream four of its titles over the next four Friday evenings—free of charge. The gratis series will be hosted by the inimitable Jamie Lee Curtis, and according to the press release, she'll be "joined by special guest celebrities and YouTube personalities." (And YouTube personalities, you say? Be still our hearts.) All joking aside, it is a sweet lineup, with each film live-streaming on YouTube starting at 9pm ET. Here's the schedule:  

April 17: The Hunger Games
April 24: Dirty Dancing
May 1 La La Land 
May 8: John Wick  

If you tune in, Lionsgate asks that you donate to the Will Rogers Foundation, which "is currently providing financial assistance to theater employees furloughed by the COVID-19 crisis." And if you're jonesing for more at-home entertainment after these screenings, we've got you covered, whether you're looking for something good to stream (what Tiger King lovers should binge next, the best movies on Netflix) or strong to drink (15 easy cocktail recipes).
