As the great quarantine continues, we invite you to join us for a virtual movie experience to enjoy the premiere of:
The Lovebirds is an upcoming American romantic comedy film directed by Michael Showalter and written by Aaron Abrams and Brendan Gall, from a story by Abrams, Gall and Martin Gero. The film stars Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani, as well as Paul Sparks, Anna Camp, and Kyle Bornheimer, and follows a couple who goes on the run after witnessing a murder.
Originally scheduled to be a theatrical release by Paramount Pictures on April 3, 2020, the film was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic closing theaters worldwide. Its rights were then sold to Netflix, who will release it digitally on May 22, 2020.
What is Netflix Party?
Netflix Party is a Google Chrome extension you can install to start watching movies and TV shows with friends and family online. What makes this extension unique is its capability to synchronize video playback, so if the group needs a quick break to grab more popcorn, everyone’s screen will pause and resume at the same time.
What’s more, a group chat feature allows you to type up your thoughts about the flick without having to reach for your phone or open another app.
How do I download the Netflix Party extension?
Once all invitees have a Netflix account and Google Chrome, you will be able to use Netflix Party in seconds following these steps:
Go to the Netflix Party website and click “Install Netflix Party.”
Once at the Chrome Web Store, click “Add to Chrome” and then “Add Extension.”
On the upper right-hand corner, an “NP” icon will appear.
Go to the Netflix website and select a movie or show to watch.
Then click on the “NP” icon, and copy and paste the URL.
Send the link to your friends and start watching together!
