A visit to the cinema online can help Slovak cinema culture and support the legal distribution of films in Slovakia, Kino Lumiére states on its website as it prepares to present the first online screening.

The difference from various video on demand services is that the show will start right on time as in the cinema, except that "cinema-goers" will watch the movie from an online stream.

"You cannot stop, break, rewind or postpone the "projection" of the film, but just like in the cinema you will watch it uninterrupted for the given time," the cinema wrote.

An online chat will be available to share thoughts about the movie with fellow viewers before, during and after the screening, but it can also be deactivated.
