Virtual Classes and Experiences

Cinemapolis movies at home

Cinemapolis is now offering a weekly slate of new films for patrons to view at home. The indie file theater is collaborating with independent film distributors like Film Movement, Kino Lorber, Magnolia Pictures, and Oscilloscope Laboratories to sell patrons “virtual tickets” for online rentals of current first-run releases.
