Hi all,

I've taken over a single screen in Toronto and i'm in need of a couple things to help enhance the theatre.

1. A film trailer for concessions (ie. Dancing popcorn or something similar). I've seen the one on filmack.com but i'd like to pay less than $150USD if possible.

2. A good way to display candy. What has worked for you what hasn't? Is there a particular site on which you've found a good display. I require something that will sit on a countertop and we offer about 15-20 varieties of candy.

Thanks in advance,

Andy

Remember the old saying you get what you pay for and that trailer is going to be running before every feature every day your open and needs to look good for a long time and is designed to get your patrins to go to the lobby

The big chains like the in counter candy cases but I find they are blocked by the customer being served and can not be seen by other customers but I perfer the candy case on the back counter as it can be seen by many customers waiting to be served thus they can pick there candy selections while they wait and its easyer and faster for the server to get the product thus more customers can be served in the same amount of time

All our candy is out on the counter (like a store)so patrons pick it up as they are waiting.
This is one reason why we have a $5.00 per capita.

in layout I go with three shelfs the lowest priced candies on the bottom then mid-range in the middle and high ent on top (think of the size of your target sale- i.e. kids down low etc.) When arranging items bright colors to the outside to draw the eye and darker to the center. The patrons eyes will follow the flow like in a newspaper ad. Be ready to move items around when you see a paticular item not moving reloucate it to a more visible spot.

When setting up your candy display there are two words you need to remember: 1. "Full" -empty shelves do not sell; 2. "Neat" - the displays must be uniform (neat rows with all labels facing the same direction).

For trailers contact Pike Productions. They have a website where you can preview what they have. They also make custom trailers - not cheap but real quality.

Thanks for the advice.


I'm going to go with the Filmack trailer. I haven't found anything else like it.

I'll try out your display technique Hollinger.
