SPJ is hosting its first journalism Netflix Party of the school year this Thursday, Sept. 24, at 7 p.m. We’ll watch the movie “Zodiac” together and chat online during the film.
If you’re interested, email VP Quinn White at firstname.lastname@example.org. He’ll start the movie and send out a link to join to everyone on the email list (the link can’t be created until he starts the movie).
To join the event, download the Netflix Party extension for the Google Chrome browser. This enables everyone to sync their viewing and to chat during the movie. Then, log in to Netflix. Click on the Netflix Party logo. Then, paste the link from Quinn into your Chrome toolbar to watch the movie. Quinn created a short video showing how to follow the steps: Netflix Party Instructions.
Here’s more about the movie:
“A serial killer in the San Francisco Bay Area taunts police with his letters and cryptic messages. We follow the investigators and reporters in this lightly fictionalized account of the true 1970s case as they search for the murderer, becoming obsessed with the case. Based on Robert Graysmith’s book, the movie’s focus is the lives and careers of the detectives and newspaper people.”
Hope to see you Thursday!
