Film Night (formerly Zoom Watch Party) was conceived during the COVID19 pandemic as a way for our fellows to digitally gather and enjoy great movies. There is no fee for admission. Everyone is welcome to join regardless of DC CMA membership.
For the Fall 2022 season, we are broadening our scope to include thought provoking documentaries along with light-hearted and campy comedies.
Movie suggestions are encouraged! Use the form below to submit suggestions for consideration. We ask that films not display drug paraphernalia or active use as this may be triggering to our viewers. Films are reviewed prior to showing to ensure content meets this criteria.
Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy reunite for the highly anticipated Disney+ Original Movie HOCUS POCUS 2. The live-action, long awaited sequel to the perennial Halloween classic, which brings back the delightfully wicked Sanderson sisters for more comedic mayhem.
It’s been 29 years since someone lit the Black Flame Candle and resurrected the 17th-century sisters, and they are looking for revenge. Now it is up to three high-school students to stop the ravenous witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on Salem before dawn on All Hallow’s Eve.
“Hocus Pocus 2” also stars Doug Jones (“The Shape of Water”), Whitney Peak (“Gossip Girl”), Lilia Buckingham (“Dirt”), Belisa Escobedo (“American Horror Stories”), Hannah Waddingham (“Ted Lasso”), Tony Hale (“Veep”), Sam Richardson (“The Tomorrow War,” “Good Boys”), Juju Brener (“Vanquish”), Froy Gutierrez (“Teen Wolf”), Taylor Paige Henderson and Nina Kitchen. The film is directed by Anne Fletcher (“Dumplin,’” “The Proposal”), written by Jen D’Angelo (“Happy Together,” “Workaholics”) and produced by Lynn Harris (“King Richard,” “The Shallows”), with Adam Shankman (“Disenchanted,” “Hairspray”), Ralph Winter (“Hocus Pocus,” “X-Men” franchise) and David Kirschner (“Hocus Pocus,” “Chucky”) serving as executive producers.
We use the familiar environment of Zoom to present our film selections. Simply click on the Join link at the top of the page to join the meeting.
We recommend using a laptop or desktop computer for optimal viewing. Since the chat window is available for crosstalk, we recommend devices with physical keyboards.
The chat window is open for anyone to post to the group or privately to each other. Film night is all about interaction between participants. It’s a lot of fun!
Cameras can be on or off during the show however, unmuting is disabled to preserve the audio experience of the movie.
Each film night can have up to 100 participants so invite a friend to attend. There is no requirement for being in CMA or in recovery so all are welcome.
Meeting opens 15 minutes prior to show time, movie starts promptly at specified time above.
