Free Tonight - LIKE Documentary about Social Media

Join us for a FREE screening of LIKE tonight at the Cabot Theatre. Doors open at 6:00 and the movie begins at 6:30. RSVP here.


This IndieFlix Original documentary explores the impact of social media on our lives and the effects of technology on the brain. Presented by BeHealthy Beverly, the YMCA of the North Shore, and the Beverly Public Schools Health and Wellness Committee.

More than 2 billion people have smartphones today. We are checking them about on average 150 times every day. The goal of the film is to inspire and help equip us to self-regulate. Social media is a tool and social platforms are a place to connect, share, and care … but is that what's really happening?

The screening will be followed by a post-film panel and discussion. We hope to see you there! thelikemovie.com
