What is Proludio?

Proludio is a subscription-based film delivery platform that can be paired with any digital projector of your choice.


As exhibitors ourselves, our theaters needed a cost effective digital alternative—so we built it.

Proludio was created by Living Room Theaters as an alternative response to costly exhibition standards set by the Digital Cinema Initiative (DCI). The development of custom software and a combination of computer hardware has allowed Living Room Theaters to continue to screen first-run Independent films without having to purchase the expensive equipment DCI requires.

Proludio is for:

Exceptionally easy to use, Proludio can integrate with lighting/house automation, and can be programmed to run a fully automated schedule of all your pre-show, trailers, and feature content. Best of all, you can use your choice of digital projector that suits your particular financial situation including projectors that do not need to meet DCI requirements.

I was fortunate enough to meet Steve Herring and the people at Proludio, during my second season as the Artistic Director of The Palm Beach Jewish Film Festival. Larry FerberThey contacted each distributor of 30 plus films and put together a flawless package that turned the festival from a series of botched films; missing subtitles, films stopping in the middle, to some not starting at all; into flawless viewing experience for the Palm Beach Jewish Community.
