It’s the third week of the Enhanced Community Quarantine and a lot of you may be feeling the effects of isolation already, especially those who live by themselves! Most of us are pretty lucky to be safe indoors, be able to work from home, and have a stocked fridge. But it’s a not sin to admit that sometimes you’re experiencing a little bit of cabin fever and miss interacting with other human beings.
This is why we’re setting up virtual movie nights for the community! Our team has hand-picked Netflix films of their choice that we can all watch together – from a distance of course.
Wondering how we’re gonna do these virtual movie nights? To join, you’ll have to use your Google Chrome browser and download the extension Netflix Party. We’ll send a link everyday for each film and all you have to do is click that link!
A8 Movie Nights will start on Monday, April 6, and will be happening every night at 7:30PM until April 15. Check out our schedule below!
