"Delivering the communal experience of watching a movie, while supporting "safer at home" directives, leading entertainment and sports agency Creative Artists Agency (CAA) today announced the launch of "Screening Room With The Stars." The weekly series features a livestream of a Hollywood blockbuster, hosted by talent from the film, exclusively on Facebook. Each film will premiere on its official Facebook page every Thursday at 4 PM PT. The series kicks off this Thursday, May 21st, with the Academy Award-winning ROCKY, hosted by the film's screenwriter and star, Academy Award-nominated actor Sylvester Stallone. Fans will have the opportunity to engage with Stallone live on Facebook throughout the screening. To tune-in, fans should go to MGM Studios' Facebook page."
"Each "Screening Room With The Stars" movie will benefit organizations aiding the relief and recovery of communities impacted by COVID-19, including the World Health Organization, #FirstRespondersFirst, DonorsChoose, and America's Food Fund.

These screenings have been a massive success since everything in the world started, and watching one of the all-time classics along with a star like Stallone is sure to be a fun time. Even if nothing new about Rocky is revealed, and what else could there be at this point, it will still be a treat for fans.
