Kino Marquee is a new initiative that creates "virtual cinemas" for temporarily closed independent theaters. It lets audiences see at home newly released films that these theaters would otherwise be playing on the big screen, and which are not yet available on other digital platforms.
Join us in supporting your community's theater in these uncertain times by buying a virtual "ticket" to watch award-winning international films, acclaimed documentaries, and restored classics on Kino Marquee. You'll be directly supporting your local art house as all revenue is being shared between distributor and exhibitor just as if you bought your ticket at the theater's box office.
In December 2020, the New York Film Critics Circle gave a special award to Kino Lorber for the "creation of Kino Marquee, a virtual cinema distribution service that was designed to help support movie theaters, not destroy them."
