Images Online: Watch films online and at home

Introducing Images Online, a virtual effort by Images Cinema to continue to introduce the best new films to our community while we are temporarily closed. Films can be watched online on a variety of your at-home screens. The cost of each online “ticket” sold will be split between the film’s distributor and Images Cinema, so each rental will directly help the theater weather these challenging times. Thanks to the filmmakers for their partnership, and thanks to you, our film-loving community, for your continued support of Images.

To watch Fantastic Fungi, go to https://vimeo.com/ondemand/imagestheater. Rent the film for $4.99 and you'll have a 48-hour window to watch it online, or purchase to download it for $14.99, and it's yours to watch forever.

Either way, you'll be helping Images Cinema, as we will get a percentage of all sales made through this specific link, so please feel free to share the link with friends and family. (Honestly, share it as much as you can.)


"One of the year’s most mind-blowing, soul-cleansing and yes, immensely entertaining triumphs." — Ebert Voices

When so many are struggling for connection, inspiration and hope, Fantastic Fungi brings us together as interconnected creators of our world.

Fantastic Fungi, directed by Louie Schwartzberg, is a consciousness-shifting film that takes us on an immersive journey through time and scale into the magical earth beneath our feet, an underground network that can heal and save our planet. Through the eyes of renowned scientists and mycologists like Paul Stamets, best-selling authors Michael Pollan, Eugenia Bone, Andrew Weil and others, we become aware of the beauty, intelligence and solutions the fungi kingdom offers us in response to some of our most pressing medical, therapeutic and environmental challenges.

"Breathtaking. Fantastic Fungi, the captivating, revealing new nature documentary, makes the case that the very essence of the world, of humanity, of life and death, can be reduced to mushrooms." — The Daily Beast

Directed by Louie Schwartzberg. Featuring Michael Pollan, Andrew Weil, Paul Stamets, Eugenia Bone. Narratied by Brie Larson. 1 hour 21 minutes. Documentary.
