How do I rent a film?

The first time you purchase a film from Film Forum At Home you will be asked to register. This will require your name, email, and a password and will be a separate login from any previous Film Forum logins.

Once you’re logged in to your account, choose a film from the menu on the right. You can watch the trailer by clicking play in the video box or click “Get @home tickets + donate” to rent. You can choose a showtime if you’d like to watch the movie at the selected time or On-demand if you’d like to watch the film immediately or any other time in the rental window (you can still change these options after you purchase).

Then you can choose to pay the price of the rental or add on a donation to Film Forum. After choosing, enter your credit card information and click “Pay”. Once your payment is processed you will be able to watch your film.

How can I watch a film on my TV?

You will have to cast the film from your computer, phone or tablet to your Smart TV or connected device such as Apple TV, Roku or Chrome Cast. Since there are so many different combinations, if you need instructions for your specific setup we recommend consulting the user guide for your device or doing an internet search.

How long do I have to watch the film?

You have 30 days to start the film once your payment is processed and 48-hours to finish watching once you’ve started playing.

Do you have an app for my phone or tablet?

Not currently but one is in development and we hope to offer it soon.

Do I get my Film Forum member discount when I rent from Film Forum At Home?

Unfortunately, due to the special pricing of our online offerings, we cannot offer a member discount at this time.

Can I use a Film Forum gift certificate to rent from Film Forum At Home?

We cannot honor gift certificates for Film Forum At Home rentals. You can still use your gift certificate to purchase our merchandise in our shop or at the theater as soon as we reopen.

Can I purchase a gift rental for someone?

Not at this time but we hope to offer this option in the future.

Are there any fees on top of the rental price?

Nope! The price you see listed is what you will pay.
