(ABC 6 News) -- With social distancing and executive orders shutting down many places of entertainment, movie theaters are sitting empty and movie studios are releasing their films online.
One local independent movie theater in Rochester is following suit and is selling virtual tickets for two different independent movies on 'Film Movement.'
For twelve dollars a movie, you can watch academy award-nominated Corpus Christi or the Wild Goose Lake.
"We wanted to continue in our mission, we believe in independent cinema, the importance of that art form, and the importance of the discussions that come from it. Especially at a time where people are trying to find things to do so we had to look for creative ways to make that happen. We couldn't do mass gatherings here but we wanted to make those films available," Andy Smith, owner of Gray Duck Theater & Coffeehouse said.
You can purchase a ticket for either of those movies here.
