Anybody who still wants to catch Fahrenheit 9/11 the night before the election now has three pay-per-view opportunities, via cable, satellite, and the Web. Variety reports that Internet movie download service Cinema Now has picked up the documentary for a one-night-only pay-per-view streaming webcast on Nov. 1. The company landed the deal via part-owner Lions Gate, which also is a partner in Fellowship Adventure Group, owner of the distribution rights for Michael Moore’s movie. The Cinema Now deal comes on the heels of Fellowship’s agreements to air pay-per-view broadcasts of Fahrenheit on Monday night on cable in-demand service TVN and on satellite carrier EchoStar’s Dish network. Despite the film’s partisan take on the Bush presidency, a Cinema Now spokesman said he hoped the early arrival of the blockbuster documentary would increase awareness of the company and its offerings. Moore and Fellowship said that some of the proceeds from the webcast would be donated to a veteran’s charity.
