A great thing about Amazon's Prime Video service is that you can watch the content from a wide variety of devices, like your phone, tablet, computer, and most streaming hardware like Roku, Fire TV Sticks, Apple TV, and more.

What is Amazon in theater purchase?

Open Amazon Prime Video on your device, or go to this Prime Video page here, and look for titles labeled as “in-theater purchase” or “in-theater rental.”

Select the title and you will be able to purchase or rent it like other titles. The payment information associated with your Amazon account will be charged. Check out Amazon's FAQ page for more details.

Here's a step-by-step guide:

1. Browse the catalog on the Amazon website, in the Prime Video app, or use the search feature to find a specific title.

2. On the title's product page, you are shown available purchase options.

3. Buying a title adds it to “My Stuff” permanently. Renting a title will add it there for a limited period.

4. Select the option to Buy or Rent as applicable. (Selecting More purchase options presents playback quality options).

How can I watch movies that are in theaters?

You can’t go to the movies, so the movies will come to you! The new Prime Video Cinema hub features movies that Hollywood intended to only be available in theaters. However, because of the coronavirus pandemic, theaters were forced to close.

While the library of movies available isn't extensive, there are some great titles that you can watch in the comfort of your home (in many cases, months before they would be released to streaming services).

Many movies are available to rent online in-home the same day as the theatrical releases. Other streaming services also offer titles for streaming purchase and rental.

Do you have to pay for prime video cinema?

You do not have to pay for access to Prime Video Cinema. Simply go to the Prime Video page, browse, and rent.

How much are Prime Video Cinema movies?

The cost per movie purchase ranges from $9.99 to $19.99, while rentals range from $4.99 to $5.99.
