The Lazy Library Hack

Can't be bothered getting off getting off the couch? Wasting your nights scrolling through the mindlessness of cyberspace and facebook-stalking 'friends' you haven't seen face-to-face in years?

Looking for something new to watch? Maybe something with a little more substance, something to make you think, something a little different? Exhausted by the latest 'pop' streaming platforms? 

Try Beamafilm.

It's the easiest library hack! (There's even an app for it.) A few taps and you are away.
