Chatham Crandell Theatre Marquee

Enjoy Kanopy at Home

We’re in this together.

Even at a mandatory six foot distance, we’re bolstered by the thoughtfulness of this remarkable community – your strength and solidarity are so appreciated as we continue to weather these strange times. While we’re all cooped up inside together/apart, we thought it would be a good opportunity to remind our friends and neighbors about an amazing at-home film resource, available to all Columbia County residents.

Last year, the Crandell Theatre joined forces with Columbia County Libraries to expand access to the film streaming platform Kanopy for all card-carrying library patrons – their catalogue of over 30,000 films is available to you now, all absolutely free to view via your computer, television, or mobile device.

If you need a place to start, we suggest the FilmColumbia 2018 favorite and sure-fire agoraphobia cure The World Before Your Feet.

The World Before Your Feet Film

“Matt Green has been walking New York City for six years. In this exuberant documentary about a man and his solo quest to walk every inch of the five boroughs, filmmaker Jeremy Workman celebrates Green and the liveliness, diversity and general fabulousness of a spectacular metropolis.”  – Laurence Kardish, Co-Artistic Director, FilmColumbia

At least we can all take some solace in cinema. And, as always, in each other.
