I doubt that.
"Once on the list, members can make requests to borrow a print or, increasingly, a digital copy; each weekend, a top studio official approves each request. At Paramount, for example, Chief Executive Brad Grey and Vice Chairman Rob Moore—the studio's two highest-ranking executives—personally handle each one. At Weinstein Co., the Weinstein brothers approve requests."
I think it take a lot more than 500USD to get DCI content
Bigger list would certainly get attention from the cinema owner association as well.
I also notice Prima Cinema has an embedded software team based in San Diego. It seems they will develop their own delivery and playback server instead of using DCI server.
