It does not download each time but only the first time you enter in the description page (synopsis / plot). Then, the picture is stored in the internal NAN Flash memory. The same for the animated backgrounds.
Sadly when running Zappiti Server on a local docker compatible NAS its still still slow to load the artwork on the movie wall and does so each time at boot.
Isn't this what happens when you manage your collection locally instead of cloud-based? I'm pretty sure you have this option already.
Look into what local server does.
