Details

Although The Ross remains temporarily closed because of the coronavirus pandemic, we are still offering high quality movies, not on our screens but streaming from links posted on our website.  We now have twelve feature length movies, and a compilation from the Cat Video Festival streaming, with more to come, plus productions of the Met Opera and the London National Theatre.  The movies are all current releases, ones of all genres, and ones from all around the world.  Please view the list below of our offerings and visit www.theross.org to rent those movies.  Rental fees for on-demand streaming of these movies will be shared with The Ross by their distributors who are offering them to support independent cinemas around the country.  Consequently, our patrons can still support The Ross, even though it is closed, by staying home and watching these streaming movies.  Sorry, but you’ll have to supply your own popcorn.  See you at the movies!
