Amazon Prime Video Cinema Is Here: In-Theater Movies At Home!

Danny had published an article a few days back that said some movies would be hitting streaming services that were meant to be in the theaters right now. Not all of the studios are taking this approach but it is nice to see some previously unseen content become available for those cooped up in the house. Amazon now has their landing page for this, and Amazon Prime video cinema is open for business.

The selection isn’t vast right now but more movies should be added as new release dates approach. Similar to how it works in the movie theater system. The price is not cheap either, $19.99 a piece.  But if you have a family all watching the movie it is comparable to the cost of a movie theater ticket and sometimes cheaper.  Plus you don’t have to pay sky high prices for your popcorn and drinks!

Movies Currently Available

Available for rent

Available for purchase early

If you have a Disney+ membership then you may want to hold off on the Onward purchase since it will get added to Disney+ at some point.  I bought Frozen 2 for my kids and it was added to Disney+ like 2 weeks later 🤦‍♂️.  But I know they will end up watching it on their tablets on future flights etc. so not all is lost.  We saw Onward in the theater and it was a very good movie. The plus side is your kids will finally let you watch something other than Frozen 2 if you choose to purchase it 🤣.

How To Discount The Purchase

The main way I plan to discount these is to use my Amazon no rush shipping digital credits, which recently were increased to $1.50 per shipment.  Remember that these do expire so use them sooner rather than later.

I also plan on using some Amazon gift cards that I purchased at a discount with Amex Offers etc.  Since Amazon does not sell gift cards online anymore it is more difficult to pull this off under lock down.  A work around could be purchasing $300 Visa gift cards using the Staples Amex Offer (if you still have it) and use that to pay. Otherwise just use a card that codes well on Amazon or everyday purchases.

Final Thoughts

These will likely be on other platforms as well like Apple / iTunes.  So if you have some discounted gift cards lying around for them check that out as well.  With the increased ordering I am doing with Amazon I am racking up the no rush credits so this is my go to.

This gives us something new to look forward to while being stuck at home. If you have already worn out your Netflix subscription and are jonesing for something new then maybe one of these titles will do the trick.  I will try to update this as new movies are added.

  1. Few things, you can buy “the invisible man” on fandango now and when you link all your accounts with movies anywhere you can see the movie on all your accounts. And the movie Onward went on Disney+ about a week after it was offered to buy on Vudu and others. But yea my best advice is what I said earlier movies anywhere is great for attaching all your accounts and you will be able to see almost all the movies in your other libraries unless they don’t support that studio. Most people don’t realize that when you buy a digital movie you don’t own it and if that studio stops supporting the platform you bought it on, you will lose it. So connecting everything to movies anywhere is the safest way To protect you collection.

  2. I’ve been watching newer films on AMC On Demand. Watched Invisable Man last night. The quality is excellent and you can watch it for 24 hours. $19.99 for new releases; some are cheaper if they are recent but not brand new. Very happy they are doing this; since we’re stuck in the house for weeks now….

    • Yeah I think it is going to be $19.99 everywhere they stream movies. So whichever platform your prefer should offer it.
