Virtual Cinema


During our temporary closure, we're excited to bring you opportunities to watch new release titles on your home screen while directly supporting Amherst Cinema.

When you watch these films at home, the cost of the digital "ticket" is split between the film distributor and Amherst Cinema—just like with a ticket purchased at our box office.

These films will be available for a set "run," with the end date listed on the film page. Click a film below for more information and to watch these Virtual Cinema selections.

Please note that prices are not set by Amherst Cinema and do not reflect our usual ticket prices.

We thank you for supporting Amherst Cinema in this new and exciting way!
