Broad Green Pictures Brings Titles to Library Borrowing App
'A Walk in the Woods,' '99 Homes' and 'I Smile Back' are among the titles that people will now be able to borrow on Hoopla Digital.
Broad Green Pictures is making a number of films available to library members across the country.
The production company has licensed several films to Hoopla Digital, a mobile and online service that lets library members stream and download movies, TV shows, videos, music and audiobooks.
Among the Broad Green titles coming to Hoopla is A Walk in the Woods. The Robert Redford and Nick Nolte adventure about two old friends who hike the Appalachian Trail will be available starting Jan. 26. 99 Homes starring Michael Shannon and I Smile Back with Sarah Silverman will also come to the service in March.
"We have secured deals with a number of Hollywood studios and distributors to build an expansive library of titles that can now be enjoyed across screens — from your mobile phones and laptops to tablets and televisions," said Hoopla founder Jeff Jankowski. "As part of our commitment to providing library patrons with access to dynamic content, we've started adding more recent releases to hoopla digital. We are excited to bring popular Broad Green films like A Walk in the Woods, 99 Homes and more to our library partners and patrons nationwide,"
Hoopla has a library of more than 400,000 titles available to borrow, including Lee Daniels' The Butler and Django Unchained. Partnerships with more than 900 library systems across North America gives library card holders access to the Hoopla app and website.
