We’re hosting a members’ watch-a-long with some of our favourite flicks.

When: Thursday 23rd April, 7pm

What: Groundhog Day

In Groundhog Day, Bill Murray’s bitter, cynical weatherman Phil Connors is forced into a cycle of seemingly never-ending sameness … sound familiar? Forced to relive the same day over and over, Phil is given the time to evaluate his attitude and his outlook on life.

How: Groundhog Day is streaming on Netflix, and we’re going to use the chrome extension Netflix Party to watch and discuss together. We’ve put together a short how-to below.

To watch and discuss the film with us in real time you’ll need access to Netflix and Google Chrome. You’ll need to:

  1. Download the chrome extension “Netflix Party” from the Chrome web store – don’t worry, it’s free
  2. Once downloaded, a red NP (NetflixParty) icon should appear next to your HTML browser box allowing you to host/join film watching parties
  3. Let us know you’re joining the party, by emailing member@hosb.org.uk by 5pm on Thursday 23rd April
  4. We’ll share the film’s URL with members who are joining the party
  5. You’ll need to click on the URLc we share and then click on the red Netflix Party icon to join
  6. Prepare your preferred film viewing snack
  7. Sit back, watch and chat!

Can’t join the Netflix Party? Feel free to watch the film in your own time on the platform / channel / DVD of your choice, you can share your home cinema set-up over on our social channels.
