Tyler DePerro, owner of the Historic Howell Theater in downtown Howell, has come up with a way for patrons to continue enjoying HHT’s eclectic programming while staying safe at home during the COVID-19 crisis: He is partnering with multiple independent movie distributors to offer movies for rent through the theater’s website.
The move allows patrons to also continue supporting the theater. Current offerings include “Once Were Brothers: Robbie Robertson and the Band,” “Saint Frances,” “The Whistlers,” and “Extra Ordinary.”
New movies will be added and the offerings refreshed depending on how long the government-mandated stay-at-home order continues.
“If we could only figure out a way to let our moviegoers virtual popcorn, we’d be all set,” said DePerro, laughing.
Rentals are $12 each. Once you rent the movie, it will be available to you to view for 30 days, and you’ll have 72 hours to finish once you’ve started watching. Click here for the Historic Howell Theater’s website and the movies available for rent.
