Weekend #37 of 53 (9/11 – 9/13/2020) for 2020 Picks By Streaming Service
Our home movie theater is still not reopened. We still have that one Regal Cinema theater 30 miles south, and that’s been our go-to option for the movie theater experience. Everything else, still remains shuttered in our area, including at least one independent theater.
This means probably a lot of moviegoers in our area are either staying with streaming for their entertainment options or also making the trek 30 miles south to the lone Regal Cinema near Olympia, Washington that’s open. It hasn’t been very busy any of the times we’ve been there, so I think a lot of people are staying home and streaming.
Still close to the first of the month, there are a bunch of good streaming movies to check out and some new movies and TV shows as well.
Shudder is doing a 61 days of Halloween countdown in 2020. They normally do 31 days, but have expanded to 61, I guess because of the Thing That Should Not be Named. They have a movie I’ve been wanting to see that was previously VOD only and it’s a Shudder exclusive, Color Out Of Space starring Nicolas Cage. We need to get our horror on because it’s that witching season!
Peacock movies rotated in September 1st and their roster of originals are included in this weekend streaming post as well.
Next week or the week after, we’ll try to check out some of the free streaming channels (Roku, Tubi, IMDB, etc). There are way too many streaming choices available out there right now to choose from and keeping up with the ones we pay for is challenging.
Chances are really good if you want to see a movie released in the last 20 years, it’s available to stream somewhere. We like using the FREE services: Reelgood.com and JustWatch.com to see what movies are playing where. If you’re reading this post past the dates indicated in the title, then you might need to check those services to see where the movies and TV shows have moved onto.
*Title with asterisk – newly released

In last week’s movie lists from streaming services (see: WHAT TO WATCH THIS WEEKEND #36 of 2020 Movie and TV Streaming Picks – Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, HBO Max, Hulu, CBS All Access) we didn’t include Peacock in the September movies rotating in list, so correcting that above.
