Digital gatherings for those who love to watch and talk about films.

One of the best things about seeing a film in a theater is sharing the experience with other people, right then and there. #SmallScreenFun brings that movie-watching camaraderie to the digital space for when we can't gather together in person.

Summer regular Ken Burns returns on July 17 — this time as a virtual guest of our #SmallScreenFun Live Chat. Ken and co-directors Sarah Burns and David McMahon will beam in with exclusive clips and stories around their newest series Muhammad Ali.
