What is Virtual Cinema?

Virtual Cinema is a new initiative that creates "virtual cinemas" for independent theaters that are temporarily closed or that have available seating limitations. It lets audiences see newly released films at home that these theaters would otherwise be playing on the big screen.


Join us in supporting your community's theater in these uncertain times by buying a virtual “ticket” to watch Scare Us at any one of the available links above. You’ll be directly supporting local art houses as all revenue is being shared between distributor and exhibitor just as if you bought your ticket at the theater's box office.

To watch Scare Us on Virtual Cinema:

Rith This Minute - "Scare Us" Interview
Five different writers . . . Five horror stories . . . One terrifying night!

A chilling horror anthology comprising five short stories, penned by an unlikely group of aspiring writers, in Sugarton - a small town plagued by the apparent return of an infamous serial killer, dubbed "Cutthroat." They've come to share their scary stories (with each other and the bookstore owner, Peter, who leads the group), but soon discover they've become the stars of a sick killer's own twisted tale.
