Introducing Virtual Cinema

View exclusive new release arthouse films not available on household streaming platforms.

The Cary’s new initiative enables you to view — at home — newly released films that we’d otherwise be playing on the big screen. Films that are not yet available on more traditional digital platforms. 

Buying a virtual ticket supports community arthouse cinema. Watch award-winning international films, acclaimed documentaries, and restored classics. We’ve partnered with Kino Marquee, and each ticket creates a five-day pass for your family to watch the film. Supporting The Cary just as if you bought your ticket at our box office!


The Tobacconist

A tender, heart-breaking story about one young man and his friendship with Sigmund Freud during the Nazi occupation of Vienna.

Epicentro is an immersive and metaphorical portrait of post-colonial, “utopian” Cuba, where the 1898 explosion of the U.S.S. Maine still resonates.

Oliver Sacks

Oliver Sacks: His Own Life explores the life and work of the legendary neurologist and storyteller, as he shares intimate details of his battles with drug addiction, homophobia, and a medical establishment that accepted his work only decades after the fact. Sacks was a fearless explorer of unknown mental worlds who helped redefine our understanding of the brain and mind, the diversity of human experience, and our shared humanity.

The Keeper

Available Now >>

Based on the true story of a young English woman and a German prisoner of war, who together overcome prejudice, public hostility and personal tragedy.

Why We’re Launching Virtual Cinema

Arthouse theaters across the country have remained closed for much of the year. To adapt to this new reality, distributors have made available their latest films in a streaming platform for exclusive access to our patrons.

This allows The Cary staff to work with distributors and filmmakers to create ways to have their films shown to you. We’ve curated select films available exclusively to arthouse theaters. We’ll make new releases available to you on an ongoing basis as we foster this online cinema program. Here’s a running list of Frequently Asked Questions that may be helpful.

We believe that by providing safe access to unique, outstanding cinema we can provide a respite for you, our patrons. We hope to be back together with you in-person soon. In the meantime, join us for The Cary Theater’s Virtual Cinema!
