The mission of the Navy Entertainment Movie Program is to provide entertainment movies for deployed forces, i.e., afloat Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and Military Sealift Command personnel, as well as movie entertainment on Navy installations.
The Navy Motion Picture Service supplies movies to more than 800 afloat and ashore locations worldwide on film and tape. NMPS distributes 150,000 copies of movies annually and has an inventory of 600,000 videotapes.
