Quick question. Can you show a public domain movie Like "Night of the Living Dead" to name one at your theatre. How does it work.
There is nobody to pay so you collect 100% of ticket price correct?

Be careful. Even movies that are "public domain" may be tied up with performance rights (e.g., the movie may have music that is copyrighted and needs to be licensed for public playing, or be based on a play or book that is covered by copyright).

Even with a public domain picture you have to get the print somewhere and pay for it, so why not rent a legal copy and secure the rights to show it above board?...
