Do-it-yourself platform Tugg Inc. has added titles from The Weinstein Co. including "The Artist," "The King's Speech," "Inglourious Basterds: and "The Reader."
Tugg said its current library consists of over 500 titles. Earlier this year, Tugg announced it had started working with multiple exhibitors including Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, AMC Theaters, Bow Tie Cinemas, Cinemark Theaters, Goodrich Quality Cinemas, Rave Cinemas and Regal Cinemas.
The Tugg model provides for individuals to select a film, screening time and nearby theater and then spread the word to their immediate and online community. Once a necessary number of people commit to attending, Tugg will reserve the theater, manage ticketing and ensure delivery of the film.
