Policy: Non-Theatrical Public Performance Rights

All titles listed on the GKIDS Non-Theatrical Website come with Public Performance Rights and are exclusively available for purchase to colleges, universities, public libraries, and other institutions.


An institutional purchase grants the institution the right to screen the film to its students and faculty, on campus or school grounds, where no admission is charged. The GKIDS Collection for Public Libraries grants the library branch the right to screen the film to its patrons on library property, where no admission is charged. These rights are valid for the life of the DVD.
