Cineplex Has Made Films By Black Creators Completely Free To Stream

With the events that have unfolded over the past few weeks and everything we’ve learnt, it’s more important than ever to keep it up and continue educating ourselves. A great way to do that is to do a deep dive into black cinema to further understand all of the struggles, stories, and experiences. Although we can’t go to movie theatres right now (hello, COVID-19), Cineplex has done us a huge solid by making movies by black creators totally free to rent.

In addition to allowing us to stream these films for absolutely free, Cineplex is covering the royalties themselves, too.

“In a time when many are turning to movies to become informed and empowered, we want to help. This collection of important films was curated to elevate Black stories, artists and filmmakers and spark discussion. These films are available to view at no cost,” reads the company’s website.

Titles available to rent range from The Color Purple, Moonlight, Get Out, Boyz N The Hood, Hidden Figures, Malcolm X, and many more.


To start streaming, all you have to do is create an account and rent your movie of choice for $0. Once you rent it, it’ll be available to watch for two days.
