April 6, 2020 Podcast

Welcome to this week’s COVID-19 “Social Distancing” podcast!

Since all movie theaters are closed right now (or should be), here are some home viewing movie options for your viewing pleasure.

AFI Movie Club

The American Film Institute (AFI) has recently established the AFI Movie Club where every day for the foreseeable future they will select a film for people across the country to virtually watch together. The club’s tagline is “movies to watch together while we’re apart.” More info and a complete list of the films and where to stream them is available on the AFI web site.

TCM Classic Film Festival: Special Home Edition

Sadly, this year’s Turner Classic Movies (TCM) Classic Film Festival in Hollywood, California has been officially cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns. But TCM has turned lemons into lemonade and is bringing a home version of the festival to the TCM network. Save the dates of April 16-19, 2020 (the same dates of the now cancelled festival) for some great films and commentary from past festivals. More details and a complete schedule are available on the TCM website.

Walt Disney Animation Studios on Disney+

I’ve picked 10 of my favorite films (and it was really hard just to pick 10…I really love these films) from Walt Disney Animation Studios that are all playing on the Disney+ streaming service. Learn more about Disney+ at disneyplus.com.
