New Movie Fix: Library > Facebook

Did you guys hear that over the weekend, Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie debuted on Facebook? That’s right:

For $10, fans will be able watch the movie and chat with its stars in real time. The model represents a new sort of social cinema that, while not widespread, appears poised to become a potentially major trend.

What do you make of this? Would you pay money to watch a film on Facebook, or would you rather pay the same money for a big-screen, sitting-with-friends-and-popcorn experience? Will this be a good development (independent films can get more exposure) or bad (more chance for piracy)?

Happily, our library movies are still free to check out! Did you know that we have feeds of the newest and latest Blu-Rays, DVDs, and TV shows at the library? There’s even a feed for the Coming Soon stuff, so you can be first on the reserve list! When you next tear yourself off of Facebook, be sure to take a look!
