Bend It Like Beckham will be feature as part of Lionsgate Live! A Night at the Movies – a programme of free films.
Lionsgate UK has been streaming some of its most popular theatrical releases including La La Land and Eddie The Eagle. This Saturday (May 16) the British classic Bend It Like Beckham will be on Lionsgate UK’s YouTube channel from 6pm.
Each film shown as part of Lionsgate Live! A Night at the Movies is being presented by a unique celebrity host, including Edith Bowman, Keith Lemon, Jack Whitehall and Jonathan Ross.
More importantly, audiences everywhere will have the chance to join Lionsgate UK in helping the NHS Charities Together COVID-19 Urgent Appeal, who are currently supporting NHS staff and volunteers caring for COVID-19 patients, and The Film and TV Charity COVID-19 Emergency Response, supporting the people behind the scenes who bring these stories to our screens.
Zygi Kamasa, CEO Lionsgate UK said, “Although there is nothing quite like watching a film on the big screen, Lionsgate Live! is a great chance for the UK to come together and celebrate the cinematic experience from home.”
“This is a fantastic opportunity for us to show our support and raise money for the NHS Charities Together COVID-19 Urgent Appeal and The Film and TV Charity COVID-19 Emergency Response, who are both doing incredible work during this time. Join us as we celebrate a night out at the cinema, and bring it on home!”
