FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

What are virtual cinema screenings?

Virtual cinema screenings are ticketed screenings of films unavailable on any other platform that viewers can enjoy from the privacy of their own home. Once you purchase a ticket, you will receive access to a temporary film rental.

How do I watch the films?

Each film will be available through the individual distributor’s website and streaming service. By clicking the link to rent, you will go to the film’s website where you can purchase and watch the film. Although you leave the Tivoli’s website, a portion of your ticket will help support the Tivoli at the Nelson-Atkins.

How can I get the film to stream on my tv?

The easiest way to get content from your computer to your TV screen is with an HDMI cord. If your TV allows you to log on the internet (a smart tv), here is a helpful resource that can navigate you through that process.

Will I have to create a new account for each new release?

We regret that distributors control how films are accessed and that there will be different requirements from each in order to screen their films. You should never give out information you are uncomfortable sharing, and while we can’t control how individual distributors permit access, we promise to diversify our recommendations so you always have something stellar to watch.

I just purchased the film, but I don’t see how to watch it?

First, check your email and confirm the purchase went through. The email should reference the film you rented in the title, and have a link for you to watch the film. Often times, you can immediately watch the film through the same website where you rented it. If you are still having issues, please submit a support request, here.

I’m a Nelson-Atkins Member, is there a member price?

Unfortunately, not at this time, but don’t worry! We are extending your member benefits while the museum is closed. These rentals help us ensure that we are able to do that, and if you would consider an additional donation to the Nelson-Atkins, you can do so here. Thank you for your support!
