Let's Have A "Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon" Themed Netflix Party, ONTD!

Over the last 8 weeks, several ONTDers & I have watched National Treasure, The First Wives Club, The Craft, a We Hate Movies podcast selection - Jupiter Ascending, Snowpiercer, one of this OP’s favorite thrillers - What Lies Beneath, Heartbreakers, which OP had not seen before, and the double weekend feature The Matrix & Inception! together using the Chrome extension Netflix Party, where we used the built-in chat feature to discuss together....from a safe social distance.

Weekly movie viewings are planned with a selection poll on Tuesdays (sometimes Wednesdays, even sometimes Thursdays because OP had a weird week).

1) Using Chrome Browser, Click here & click on the "Install Netflix Party" button. Once you are redirected to the Chrome Web Store, click "Add to Chrome" to finish installing Netflix Party.
2) On movie night, the host ONTDer will open a video in Netflix to watch and start playing the video. If selected, the host will have full playback controls (YMMV).
3) To create a party, the host will click on the red "NP" icon located next to the address bar. Then click "Start Party" to get the party started, and share the party URL in an ONTD post to invite everyone to join!
4) To join a party click on the party URL, which will redirect to Netflix's website. You must have your own Neflix account log-in. Then click on the "NP" button next to the address bar, and you should automatically join the party.

Below is a poll to vote for our 9th week's movie night selection & date/time. This week I have selected films starring actors who have a "Bacon Number - within 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon". Yes, this is a fairly uninspired theme. I am almost out of movie podcasts to form themes around, please suggest future weeks' themes in the poll below!

"Huh? What? I'm up, I'm up"

Thank you to everyone who voted for the Friday/Saturday Double Feature last weekend. I think The Matrix & Inception paired together quite nicely. I love sharing these movies with you! How many degrees from Kevin Bacon are you? What is your favorite Kevin Bacon role?
