BUY A TICKET. WATCH AT HOME. SUPPORT A THEATER.
“To put it simply — and, yes, gratefully — ‘Phoenix, Oregon’ is the sort of movie a lot of us need right now.”
“The film ‘Phoenix, Oregon’ is a lovely and well-observed drama filled with moments of such startling clarity that at times absolutely took my breath away.”
New Indie Film Offers “Theatrical-at-Home” Viewing Option
As theaters across the nation are closed, please join us for a virtual movie night to enjoy “the sort of movie a lot of us need right now” (Variety)– a comedy of midlife reinvention and the redeeming power of friendship.
The film was on track to open in theaters today … but the COVID-19 pandemic led the distribution team to pivot quickly to a creative approach: offering an alternative at-home viewing option, while still funneling revenue to theaters.
How does it work?
- Go to the phoenixoregonmovie.com website and buy a “Theatrical-at-Home” ticket for $6.50.
- You have the option to choose a theater, or select “no preference”. Revenues will be split with your selected theater, or split with all 17 theaters – either way, your ticket supports a theater!
- You’ll receive an email with a screening link; click play to watch the film within 3 days. You’ll have 48 hours to watch the film after clicking play.
