Here’s How You Can Support Your Local Independent Theater Right Now


So, you’ve streamed movies on Amazon Prime and iTunes before. Using a virtual screening room will feel no different — just select the movie that interests you and pay a fraction of standard ticket pricing for access to a handful of exclusive theatrical releases that have yet to hit major streaming platforms. Plus: Occasional director Q&As for curious minds who’d like to know more about what they just consumed. A percentage of revenue (often 100%) from each title you stream will go directly to the independent theater of your choosing. Here are a handful of participating theaters you can sign up with:
