Theatrical and video-on-demand rights are still available.

Also of note in the story: WNET is launching a theatrical label American Masters Pictures, which will try to get into theaters documentaries that are co-produced by “American Masters.” The goal is to provide a conduit for “Masters”-produced docs to have some sort of theatrical run.
