So is everyone hearing of a 3 week min. on Iron Man? Possible 4 weeks on Indiana Jones?

If every studio insists on 3 weeks this summer, it will be a crappy year for us twins.

The ability to run a new movie every week is so important to all of us.

Any advice please email me (in my profile)

the buzz on Iron Man is starting to really grow - i bet that movie builds and you will be happy with your third week. Raiders i have no clue - i love the francise - so hopefully. Wall-E - how can you go wrong with any Pixar movie. im thinking Get Smart is going to get lost very quickly. August worries me.

I have 4 screens and June looks packed...
Zohan, Kung Fu Panda, The Happening, Hulk, Love Guru, Get Smart, Wall - E, Wanted. All playable, but some will have to be skipped.

Of course, we are all begging for something decent now.

We were offered Ironman, Indian Jones, and Kung Fu for two weeks each IF we played all three. We are a small single screen normally open week-ends only.

Are they allowing you to play on weekends only?
They told me I have to play Iron Man for two weeks, six days, every day.

Yes, week-ends only. But that is our normal operating schedule, even in the summer. We have opened during the week before, when that was the only way a studio would let us have a print as early as we ran it.

I tried that, but they wouldn't let me have either of them for weekends only, which is when I am usually open. I agreed today to do six days a week. May is going to be a long month. Good for you Puzzlegut.

I was curious if they were following through on the offer to Puzzlegut for 2 weeks each if he showed all three Paramount offerings as mentioned above???

Yes they are, but there is a possibility we may need to hold Ironman for a third week, depending on grosses. However, the deal was we showed all three on the break or none on the break. Hopefully this will work out good for us.

BurneyFalls, I double checked this past week with my Paramount rep about the week-ends only and he confirmed it was not a problem. I told him I was asking because I knew someone who had been told they had to run 6 days but was normally open week-ends only. He said he wasn't aware of anybody requiring that. We book our own movies, not sure if you do or if it even makes a difference.
