Hello, MTSers! After some delay, movie nights are back, with a fresh line-up to keep you all clucking happily!

In a couple of weekends we're hosting a live movie watching party in our Discord text chat server. We're hoping this will be a great chance for everyone to meet new people, get to know our chat system (if it's your first time), and also watch some really fun movies. This time up we've got an awesome animated ensemble!

The movies

Chicken Run
These chickens are sick of being cooped up, so it's time for a great escape! This gang of gals, led by the feisty Ginger, realizes it's time to leave the nest of their owner, the sinister Mrs Tweedy, and her hen-pecked husband, when the egg business takes a downturn. Their escape is rudely interrupted, however, by a rooster who falls from the sky! So this handsome, cocky stranger can definitely teach them how to fly to their escapes, right? Hilarious, heartfelt, and a fun time for the whole family!

Creature Comforts
Okay, not a movie, but close enough. Creature Comforts is a wickedly funny claymation TV show which takes candid interviews with ordinary Britons and sets them to delightfully incongruous animated farm animals, slugs, pets, flies, and bats. Watch a zoo jaguar complain about how the conditions here are lacking compared to back in Brazil! Watch a show pony brag about how he has a girlfriend in every town! It's zany, it's weird, it's hard to explain but irresistible once you've watched a few.

Where & When

Saturday, March 10th
Chicken Run 84 minutes long - 6 PM UTC / 7 PM CET / 1 PM EST | Time Zone Converter
Creature Comforts Variable, each segment normally runs between 4-5 minutes, we'll watch a bunch, come and go whenever - 12 AM UTC (midnight March 11) / 1 AM CET (March 11) / 7 PM EST (March 10) | Time Zone Converter

The chatting will take place in our Discord server, which you can join here. On the day of the watch party we will create a "Movie Night" channel dedicated to this event, so make sure to choose it from the Text Channel options.

How it works

First thing's first: Everyone needs to find their own copy of Chicken Run. Due to legal reasons, we cannot offer to stream it. Fortunately, however, it isavailable on Netflix in at least some territories!

Good news for Creature Comforts, Aardman has legally uploaded quite a few segments to YouTube, so we'll be watching from there. I'll come up with a list of clips and link to them in the chat on the day.

We'll be getting everyone synced up by doing a text countdown in chat. For this reason, please show up at least a few minutes early, to ensure we all start at the same time. If you arrive after we've started, you'll have to figure out the sync for yourself (or, for Creature Comforts, wait for us to start the next segment).

The meadows are in bloom:
who has ever seen such insolence?

I'll make an attempt to join for the 1st time on the 10th! I don't have a TV, although I own Chicken Run, one of my favorites, and got Netflix recently. I stuck a large reminder on the top of my pc, but if anyone wants to message me Friday and Saturday as a reminder, I'll be here. (:

another idea for you guys on movie night is if it is on netflix and youtube or hulu any online streaming survice you can use Rabb.it which allows everyone to watch at the same time without having to coordinate the start.

There's a very good reason why we aren't doing that...
