Livestreams this weekend will give you a night at the movies, a star-studded benefit to fight COVID-19 around the world and the last show in Jimmy Buffett’s virtual concert tour.

Friday night at the movies

Lionsgate Live is offering a night at the movies Friday. "John Wick" will begin streaming for free at 9 p.m. Eastern. Keanu Reeves stars in the 2014 action-thriller. Jamie Lee Curtis will host Friday’s livestream at Lionsgate.live and on YouTube.

While the movie is free, Lionsgate is encouraging you to donate to a fund helping motion picture and theater employees currently furloughed in pandemic.

Star-studded stream to benefit global healthcare workers

Scientists and artists will come together Saturday night for LIVEMEDAID. The livestreamed event benefits Doctors Without Borders, which is fighting COVID-19 in countries with fragile health-care systems.

Some of the biggest names in popular science, including Neil deGrasse Tyson and Dr. Jane Goodall, will join musicians, including Queen and Adam Lambert, as well as Earth, Wind and Fire, for the four-hour stream.

You can watch Saturday from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Free show for Parrotheads
