American Film Institute launches quarantine AFI Movie Club with Steven Spielberg. AFI turns their 100 Years, 100 Movies list to recommend quarantine viewing.

“Welcome to the launch of the AFI Movie Club, where all you have to do to become a member is to love movies,” Spielberg said. “I have the honor of announcing the very first film we would encourage the world to watch, The Wizard of Oz. Now I know you think you’ve seen it, but please think again because right now, at this moment in our history, what better message is there than ‘There’s no place like home.’ So discover The Wizard of Oz or rediscover it by going to and I hope you love it as much as I always have. See you at the movies.”


In this time when we are reminded “There’s no place like home,” AFI has created the AFI Movie Club, a global, virtual gathering of those who love the movies. Each day’s film – announced by a special guest – is accompanied by fun facts, family-friendly discussion points and material from the AFI Archive to enrich your viewing experience. Watch Steven Spielberg announce Movie Club and the program’s inaugural film: THE WIZARD OF OZ. Learn more at
