Online Movies For Free! But....

A library of movies, online, that is available on demand. Sounds like a dream come true for movie lovers and a Web site called CinemaNow is trying to make it a reality…

"CinemaNow is the beginnings of what we feel is going to be one of the most interesting new sites in the area of showing film content over the Internet."
CinemaNow CEO Curt Marvis. The independent production company Trimark holds a majority stake in the Web site and that means there will eventually be a rich library of movies available to watch online. Right now, the choices are pretty limited (sound) …with films like To Die For 2 and other indie horror flicks for the most part. The quality, even watching over a fast Internet connection, leaves a lot to be desired. But the price is right…

"Currently, they're completely free, meaning that they're completely free even without any commercial interruption."
The plan, eventually is to stream targeted ads to viewers before the online movie begins. There's even a section on the site designed to assist aspiring movie makers. Maybe someday I'll be ready to make some popcorn and log on to watch a movie. But not yet. You can find us on the web at Bootcamp, I'm Fred Fishkin for CBS News.
