How do I watch the film?
All you have to do is click on the "BUY TICKETS" link of the films we are presenting. It will take you to the studio page where you enter your email address and your credit card or PayPal information. That’s it! Once the film is rented, it will be available to view for several days once you’ve started watching. The rental prices will vary but most are between $10 - $12.
How do I watch the film?
You can easily watch on your computer, smartphone, or tablet, or cast to your Smart-TV or Google Chromecast.
If you have a Google Chromecast, make sure that it’s connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the device you used to purchase the film. Then, click in the playback window and select your Google Chromecast.
If you have a smart TV but don't know how to connect from your phone or computer- go to settings and find and click the word CAST or MIRROR. OR when you start the movie bring your cursor to this symbol (to the left) usually in the lower right hand corner of the picture.
IF YOU SIMPLY CAN'T CONNECT, CLICK "CONTACT" UP ABOVE AND KEITH OR BETSY WILL TRY TO HELP.
