    There are a lot of screens on which to watch new movies: TV, laptop, iPad or smartphone.

    But until now you needed a TV signal, a disk, or a movie-streaming Internet connection.

    Not for long. This week the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport will debut, for the first time anywhere, a dozen vending kiosks that rent or sell movies on a computer flash drive that can be watched on a Windows PC.

    The rental service, from a company called Digiboo in Santa Monica, Calif., is being introduced at a time when consumers are shifting away from movie rentals to online movie streaming. Whether the Digiboo kiosks mark the next evolution in watching video, or just another dead end like the Betamax VCR, they illustrate the enduring allure of the movies even as technology morphs them into new forms.
