Do my member benefits apply?

YES! We are only able to offer member discount pricing for films listed above for MTF – AgileLink & MTF – Vimeo streaming platforms. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide free Tuesday movies for Premium Members.

Gold Card members will receive free access to our MTF virtual offerings unless otherwise noted.

 

Which device can I watch this on?

If you are unable to cast/mirror from your phone or computer using the settings included on those devices, we highly recommend mirroring by connecting your computer to your TV with an HDMI cable.

How do I purchase a ticket?

For these films, you will need to register for or sign in to a free Agile account. If you’re a Michigan Theater Foundation member, you will use your member login.

Click the ‘Buy Tickets’ button and select add, then proceed to checkout. Click ‘Checkout’, then make a donation (graciously appreciated). On the next page, you will enter your payment information. Click the check boxes at the bottom, and then ‘Make Payment’.

Once your payment has been processed you will receive a confirmation email with a link to watch your rental. As long as you are still within your rental period, you can access your rental from your account or on the film’s purchase page by clicking on the ‘Already purchased? Click here to watch’ button.

How long do I have access to my rental?

Once your payment has been processed you should receive a confirmation email, and the film will become available to you for 48 hours after you push play unless otherwise noted in the red film info box. If the film has yet to appear in your account, you can try refreshing your browser.
