DGC @ Home: Vitalina Varela (Begins April 24)

The Digital Gym Cinema may be closed for the time being due to COVID-19 concerns, but we are working with key distributors and studios to bring you DGC @ HOME, a “virtual theater” experience  featuring films we would normally program at our venue under normal circumstances. All you have to do is click on the purchase links below to have temporary access to our film programming. You can enjoy films from the comfort of your own home using your browser or the distributor’s app. This temporary solution ensures the sustainability of our beloved micro-cinema as a significant percentage of each purchase is passed on to us. Enjoy these amazing independent films and we hope to see you at the movies very soon!
