Historians At The Movies is a weekly event in which people all over the world watch and live-tweet a movie together with historians. Every Sunday night at 8pm Eastern, we fire up a film on Netflix and starting tweeting. We laugh, we cry, we historicize. But we do it as a COMMUNITY. And you're invited!
So how do you play along? Easy. Follow me on twitter at @herberthistory and follow the hashtag #HATM. Around 7:30pm eastern on Sunday night I'll start the night's conversation. You'll see us. At exactly 8pm, we all push play together and then tweet about the movie using the hashtag #HATM. You get to watch something fun and usually do it with experts in the field who are often as caught up in the movie as you. It's a ton of fun, super informative, and insanely addictive.
