Art House Online: Films Available via Virtual Screening Rooms

Help us support art house cinemas by renting these new, recent and re-released films.

This is not like buying or renting a film on a regular VOD platform. The landing pages (in the notes) will ask you to pick a theater for a virtual screening, and your purchase will support that cinema.

Prices and availability are detailed in the notes. Rentals average between US$5–12 for 48 hours to 5 days. Many are US-only, and some are online for a limited time only.

Feel free to suggest more available rentals from independent studios if you don’t see them here (besides regularly scheduled, widely available VOD and TVOD releases!), and reply below if any of these links no longer work. Sort by…
