Have you been missing the communal joys of watching films with strangers? Are you not yet sick of livestreams? If you giddily answered YES to both of these questions, you’re in luck: For the first four Friday’s in October, we’ll be resurrecting our creepy, kooky, and altogether ooky Milwaukee Record LiveSCREAM Theater. We did five episodes last year for the 2019 Milwaukee Film Festival, and now we’re bringing the series back for these strange and socially distant times. Oh, and the whole thing is sponsored by the (all-virtual) 2020 Milwaukee Film Festival. Fun!
Like last year, LiveSCREAM Theater will be a Facebook Live viewing party of a classic public domain horror film. Unlike last year, there won’t be any guests, so you’ll just have Milwaukee Record’s own Matt Wild (that’s me) introducing the film and occasionally popping in to drop some trivia and other info. Want to comment along on Facebook and Twitter as the film rolls? YES. YOU SHOULD TOTALLY DO THAT. JOIN IN!
The (again, all-virtual) 2020 Milwaukee Film Festival runs October 15-29. The lineup will be unveiled October 5. Tickets and passes are on sale NOW.
Here’s this year’s LiveSCREAM lineup:
Friday, October 2 — 9 p.m.
THE LAST MAN ON EARTH (1964)
Friday, October 9 — 9 p.m.
A BUCKET OF BLOOD (1959)
