Virtual Cinema FAQ

A portion of your streaming purchase supports the Maine Film Center.

While Railroad Square Cinema is temporarily closed due to COVID-19, we’re proud to offer a slate of virtual new releases that you can enjoy at home. We work with many different distributors, and it may be necessary to set up accounts on different websites to explore our complete, curated lineup.

Your streaming purchases through @homeArts, Eventive and other platforms directly benefit the Maine Film Center. We’ll do our best to alert you when your ticket purchase supports our nonprofit cinema.

Will I need to set up another account to stream films?

Your mainefilmcenter.org or watervillecreates.org login information will not work for other streaming platforms. The first time you use [email protected], you’ll need to set up an account. Sometimes your browser may autofill your mainefilmcenter.org username and password, but this will not work. Creating a new account will require your name, email address, and a password. To stream movies in the future, you can simply log in.

I purchased the film but can’t figure out how to watch it!

First, check your email, and make sure your purchase went through. [email protected] confirmation emails do not contain a link to watch the film. To view the films you’ve rented through this platform go to mainefilmcenter.athomearts.org, sign in, click ‘My Account’ and select ‘My Screenings’, where you’ll be able to see a list of all your purchased films. For many other platforms, the confirmation email you’re sent after purchasing should contain a link to watch the film. If you’re still having issues, please Contact Us.

How do I stream films on my TV using AirPlay/Apple TV or Chromecast?

A guide to using Google Chromecast can be found here, and a guide for AppleTV’s Airplay is here.
