I've looked through the archives and I can't really find a solid answer. I'm just curious if there is ANY way to show a movie in a coffee shop/bar? ex) 'renting' the movie from DirecTV, using a PVR..?

-Eric
Thanks again guys. I've been reading the archives like you wouldn't believe

You need to license it from the distributor:
http://directories.vnuemedia.com/fjiguides/distguide/

The International Distribution and Subdistribution Guide, which supplements the regular monthly Buying and Booking Guide, is designed to furnish ready reference information on the who, what, where and how of theatrical sales. It lists in comprehensive detail the names, addresses, personnel, telephone numbers and product of domestic and international distributors, both major and independent, along with similar information on regional exchanges and exchanges and subdistributors, together with national companies they handle.

But doesn't DirecTV obtain a license from the distrib.? So I would need permission from DirecTV, not, say WB.
Also, at http://www.pvrcinemas.com/pvr/index.asp
they seem to show movies that are out on DVD.
Thanks for the quick reply.

DirecTV is normally licensed for personal home viewing only. They do have a commercial licensing process, which is commonly used by sports bars & the like. The fees are based on the seating capacity of your establishment and cover specific channels and programs. You would have to determine if one of their offerings fits what you're trying to do, then license it accordingly in order to be legal.
