How About a Public Viewing?
Hey folks, hope you are all well. I’ve been thinking of doing something fun, soon: I would like to get a few folks together over the ‘Net – most likely using Google Hangouts and have a viewing of some public domain cheese-fest of a movie. It would be similar to what my buddies and I do now over Skype – We all load up a movie, and on a count (you know: 3…2..1), we start the movie at the same time. It is necessary for everyone to be using headphones, as if someone is off by a half-second or so, it sounds like you’re watching the movie in a giant cavern – confusing. As for what movie that has to be decided. It has to be public domain so everyone can get a legal copy, and there are a LOT of public domain movies out there. I think something like Killers From Space (1951) would be a great place to start – it’s freely available on the Internet Archive and definitely fits the type of movies that this site is dedicated to. Heck… If you are interested in doing this, just click link for The Killers From Space and download the movie (links on the left side of the page – you most likely will have to right hand click on the links and choose “Save As” or else the movie would most likely just start playing in your browser – you don’t want that.
So, let me know if you want to do this – It will most likely be later at night (11:00 pm or later, MST (that’s -7:00 GMT).
