FAQs from the distributor
Does the film have captions?
Yes. Captioning is an available feature on our films.

I didn’t get a chance to watch the movie in time. Can I get a new link or a refund?
If the rental period is expired, we unfortunately are unable to provide a refund. If you would still like to see the film, please repurchase for a new rental period. If you need a refund for another reason, please contact to request one.

Why do I need to create a Vimeo account to watch a film?
NEON’s Virtual Cinema is supported by Vimeo. It is a product from Vimeo – your normal Vimeo login will not work. It also does not work with the Vimeo app you might have. You will be creating a new Vimeo OTT account that allows you to pause and revisit the film anytime within 72 hours of your purchase, and helps prevent potential piracy.

I paused the film and now I can’t find the link. Where do I go?
The easiest way to resume play or find your link is to refer to the receipt emailed to you upon purchase.

This is a Vimeo OTT service. How does this benefit my favorite theatre?
Revenue from your purchase is split evenly between NEON and the exhibitor, similar to a traditional box office split. The purchase link you choose will alert us which venue you wish to,support with your virtual ticket.

Is my payment secure?
Our platform uses Stripe to process payments. Stripe has been audited by a PCI-certified auditor and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry.
