Kanopy Badge Sq

Kanopy Movie Service - Offers what the New York Times calls "a garden of cinematic delights," Kanopy showcases more than 30,000 of the world’s best films, including award-winning documentaries, rare and hard-to-find titles, film festival favorites, indie and classic films, and world cinema with collections from Kino Lorber, Music Box Films, Samuel Goldwyn, The Orchard, The Great Courses, PBS and thousands of independent filmmakers.

Here's how it works: 

Create a Kanopy account, then stream up to 6 films per month.

  • Once you press play on a film, you have 3 days to view it as many times as you like without using another play credit. (Each film = 1 credit)
  • Play credits reset on the 1st of the month
  • Once you have reached your quota of films, you will not be able to play any films until the new month starts when you will be given a fresh quota of 6 play credits again.

Films can be streamed from any computer, television, mobile device or platform by downloading the Kanopy app for iOS, Android, Apple TV, Chromecast or Roku.
