What happens when you book on AGG. and the first week reviews of a film are all negative? If the film stops doing well other than the opening weekend how long are you "really" obligated to keep it? Will you tick off the distributor if you try to drop it after 2 weeks or is that pretty much a no-no.

Nobody wants a poor performing film, especially when you only have 4 screens.

Thanks

Instead of relying on reports of how a film is doing in other cities why don't you survey YOUR patron to see what type (or title) product they want?

Depends on the company and the film. Some companies (Fox, for example) usually make two week deals going in for small towns.

Other times I have to commit to three or four weeks, depends on the situation. "Semi-Pro" was three weeks.

I also have four screens.

I have had very few deals more than two weeks at my new theatre. In many cases, third week can be split. This is just my situation so far in the 5 months we've been open.
