Netflix Party – Netflix party is a Google Chrome plugin that allows groups of friends to watch a movie together, from a distance! Once everyone has installed the plugin, one person sends a link to all those participating, a chat window opens, and everyone can chat while watching the movie – it’s almost as if you’re all there together! I’ve been hosting a movie night almost weekly since COVID-19 began, and our group of friends looks forward to connecting each week! Check out: https://www.netflixparty.com
B Street Theatre in Sacramento adapted quickly and began offering virtual events shortly after COVID began.
