Cinematheca – freeware lets you manage your movies and swaps


Cinematheca is a neat hybrid freeware and web application which lets you manage your movie collection. What makes it different is the online module which gives you the power to monitor the times you loan or exchange DVDs with your friends.


We all know how annoying it is to lend a mate a film and realise several months later that you’ve forgotten who’s got it. Well worry no more, dear person, for now you can track the loan and send round grandma with a nasty note if it’s not returned on time. Win!

It’s a well thought out product, with nice touches like the ability to add multiple titles very quickly in a single box, and you can also hide/display titles if you don’t want your friends to see your private stash of Donny Osmond stuff. Available in either Russian or English.

  A long time has passed since you bought your first movie on DVD. Now you have a large collection of films that can arouse envy. Your friends like to exchange movies with you, but the larger your collection grows, the harder it is to find a movie they haven’t seen. They also have a problem selecting a film you haven’t yet seen. Of course, you can exchange lists of your movies using e-mail or upload the list to your homepage. But why should you do this when you have Cinematheca.
