It's Another Bloody Movie night!

Tonight we pretend we're going to the movies on Sunday, July 8 1973 and seeing Oklahoma Crude!

Official start at 7pm, there'll be something neat on the stream from 6pm (0800 UTC) if you want to check your setup.

Oh, I won't be watching to check but if this is showing at a bad time for you, the whole program should repeat exactly 12 hours later ... 😁

Thanks everyone who attended! The dice have been rolled, and next week we'll be going back to 9 February 1992 and watching Freejack!

If you missed movie night due to timezones, try visiting the stream site 12 hours later (2000 UTC) and it should all run again! I'll be in bed so if it doesn't, I won't fix it. :awesome:

@mike Thanks for running the stream tonight!

Anyone watching the rerun stream: Safari (mobile and on macOS) suffers from unrecoverable hangs if there’s a buffering lag. Use a different browser.

@mike I didn't realise we'd decided on a movie for sure. Was about to suggest Kenny Rogers telemovies but not watching those is probably for the best.

@stibbons yeah the conversation seemed fairly conclusive that nobody had any objections to Freejack so I just called it. Much less messing about than polls and stuff. I think we might only do those if there's a tough choice.

@mike For sure, it's a fair call. I'm just upset I didn't get to make everyone watch Singles.

@mike I realized this morning that the Plex version of the movie ending abruptly partway through was just foreshadowing the real movie ending after 112 excruciating minutes.

@futzle reminds me, I need to figure out what's going on there because it's the same file that I was streaming. Never seen plex do that before.
