The final Broadway performance of 'Rent' on Broadway will be filmed and released in cinemas around the USA. That means a DVD release in the UK?

I wouldn't automatically assume that this would mean a DVD release. I know it won't be on DVD in America that's for sure. There are and have been other things like this that have been shown in movie theatres that don't get released onto DVD. For example, the Met Opera shows some of their productions in movie theatres but they don't bring them out on DVD afterwards.

Yeah i don't think it will be available on dvd, as Winston says they have shown things like the Operas and certain sports events etc at Cinemas there but they never get a dvd release.

However

This is Rent, and its the same studio who released the film and its also their final show, so you never know

Im sure a bootleg will be available anyway lol

Thats why i posted this as an 'however'!!
The last performance of 'Smokey Joe's Cafe' on Broadway was recorded and has been on DVD for the last 10 years!!!! 'Rent' being a little ore of a money spinner than 'Joes' they wont leave it for long on a few rolls of celluloid following a week or two in cinemas.
'Rent' isnt being shown live on the last night.
The Met Opera productions are screened live in selected cinemas and depending where you are in the States you could find yourself in a cinema in the morning to catch a presentation. The 'Rent' screenings are for normal cinema release NOT a one off screening that night!

If they are wanting to make money off it it would make sense they release it on dvd, however i dont think they will want to jeopardize future productions of it (especially the upcoming tour in 2009 with Anthony and Adam) by making it available on dvd

Though maybe sony are looking to make some money back of Rent after the film (which i actually really liked) did not make anything at the cinema

It isn't made clear if these are going to have a release on DVD or if it is just going to be a one time showing or if they are going to show it more then once.

Its being released for limited cinema release at Christmas. This release does not include the UK.
No mention of a DVD release, it was just me think that they may do a release at some time.
