Virtual Screenings

We have received numerous heartwarming messages asking how people can help The Charles while we are temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We have teamed up with our distribution partners in a new effort to bring great screenings directly into your home. Each title listed below will direct you to the distributor’s virtual platform where you will be able to rent the movie for a specified time.

How does this help The Charles? All revenue from these screenings will be split between the distributor and the theatre.
