Revelations Entertainment is an independent movie production company founded by actor Morgan Freeman and Lori McCreary in 1996. In 2006, Revelations became the first film production company in history to distribute a film (10 Items or Less) online while the movie was still playing in theaters. This was achieved by using (now-defunct) ClickStar (also founded by Freeman and McCreary as a joint venture with Intel Corporation) as their online distribution site.

Investments[edit]

In 2009 Revelations Entertainment signed on to financially back Digiboo, a digital Kiosk company. Digiboo’s touch-screen kiosks can hold more than 1,000 movie and TV shows, which can be downloaded to USB 3.0 flash devices within a minute. Revelations Digital CEO Samuel Edge will serve as the chief technology officer at Digiboo.[1]

The ClickStar online movie service, a joint venture between production company Revelations Entertainment and chip-maker Intel Corporation, stopped operations in 2008.
