TCA Big Screen @ HOME
Now you can support TCA and watch new releases right from the comfort of your home. Films are curated by TCA and only currently available through independent cinemas online–all you have to do is make your own popcorn. See tcataos.org/calendar/ for complete virtual screening listings.
How does Big Screen TCA @ HOME work?
- Go to tcataos.org/calendar/ and click on the movie you want to watch.
- Then, click on the WATCH MOVIE link. After that, it’s easy! You will “buy a ticket,” and be able to view the film.
- Watch on your computer, smartphone, tablet. Or, depending on the film, cast to your Apple TV, Google Chromecast or Roku.
- Instructions for how to watch on smart TVs are available at ticket purchase.
Why do movies cost between $10 – $12? These offerings are new releases and/or not widely available films. If you were going to see this on a big screen, a single entry at TCA costs between $7-$8.50. If there are 2 or more of you, it’s a deal! And even though TCA does not set the ticket price (the digital distributors do), we receive 50% of the ticket sales.
Why are time frames for viewing upon purchasing a ticket different? Virtual cinema platforms differ depending on the film’s distributor. The entire film industry is working fast to pivot during this time when social gatherings are prohibited. So, for now, there is no industry standard and different organizations have different ideas for how to “present” films digitally.
We Thank YOU for your continued support of independent films, TCA, and other theaters like us that are dedicated to presenting films on the big screen.
