In Theaters This Friday—AND on your Apple or Android, Too!

This Friday, May 8, for the first time ever, your HCPL library card will let you stream a new movie to your Apple or Android device on the same day it opens in theaters--courtesy of Hoopla, HCPL’s streaming movie and music service.

That’s right. The comedy, Welcome to Me, produced by Will Ferrell and starring Kristen Wiig, will open in theaters and on your smart phone, tablet, or home computer at the same time, and it is free! No $8 popcorn. No trek across the mall parking lot. You don’t even have to silence your cell phone if you don’t want to.

If you haven’t used Hoopla, yet, this is a great way to try it out. Also, if you don't have a device or internet connection of your own, you are encouraged to visit your nearest HCPL branch this Friday (or any other day). Our staff will be happy to help you get started. All you need is an HCPL library card and an email address.

Welcome to Me, featuring appearances by Will Ferrell, Wes Bentley, Joan Cusack, Linda Cardellini and Adam McKay, is rated R by the MPAA and is not appropriate for younger viewers.
