Movies & Chill: Events for Friday (July) the 13th – 15th

Our Things to Do piece for this weekend includes new showtimes at The Broad and The Prytania. But, what if you don’t want to travel anywhere? What if you just want to crash on the couch and absorb some on-demand cinema or television? For those so inclined, we have you covered.

Below are our snack eating and mind-numbing and/or enlightening curated choices for your video on demand three evening, two-day stay-cation:

It being Friday the 13th, you may be in the mood for something delightfully terrifying or just campy fun. The horror app/channel Shudder will be broadcasting a 24-hour marathon of Joe Bob Briggs selections called The Last Drive-In! It’s the return of an old hosted tv movie night show from the 90s, in one binge watching burst. Get some friends and enjoy the anecdotes with the scares!

The Turner Classic Movies/Criterion Collection app FilmStruck features many a classic + eclectic choices in independent cinema. Now, they are spotlighting 80s Fantasies, including the Martin Short starrer Innerspace from director Joe Dante. It’s a twisted comedy of sorts, with many surprising Easter egg like details that’ll make you appreciate it all the more. Highly recommended viewing, both the movie and the app.


Whether you beat the weather by central air or window unit, stay frosty this Summer with the above cinematic choices and make an event in your home!
