How to watch movies in the River Cinema on the East River 15 in Brooklyn
New York City’s iconic river cinema, Hudson’s Bay Company, is about to take a big step into the digital age.
The Hudson’s bay cinema will offer a digital-only service starting this month.
The service will be available at the River East and Hudson’s waterfront cinemas beginning at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 20, according to the company.
There will be a digital library for the Hudson’s theater and an on-demand service for the River West theater.
The River East theater will also offer a “digital version of classic films and other live entertainment.”
“This is the first time Hudson’s West and Hudson East have been combined,” the company said in a statement.
“We’re excited to offer an all-digital experience for our customers, including the River City, and will be working closely with the City to make this a reality.”
The River Cinema is also adding a digital “play list” to the River’s entertainment section.
There are no specific plans to add more films, but the company is looking for suggestions for what films should be shown.
“Our goal is to make it as easy and convenient as possible to experience the River Cinemas content,” Hudson’s Entertainment General Manager Daniel Mazzara said in the statement.
The River Cinema will be the first theater in the city to offer digital movies.
The company’s Hudson’s River Theater has been offering a digital version of some of its most popular films in the past, such as the film “The Last Temptation of Christ,” “The Misfits” and “The Sound of Music.”
The digital movies offered at the Hudson River Theater will be offered at other locations across the city.
The river theater also offers a digital collection of local art.
