Virtual Cinema

Through our Virtual Cinema program, 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 when you buy a ticket at the 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.

Virtual Cinema is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Virtual Cinema is also supported by a grant from Mass Cultural Council’s Cultural Investment Portfolio and from Amherst Local Cultural Council, a local agency, which is supported by MCC.
