okay... got caught "doubling" a pic and have been told you are "off service". What does it mean? How long? What's the correct way to make ammends?

What film company?

The last time I know of a friend of mine was taken off service was by Paramount back in 1988. He had a twin theatre and had moved Naked Gun from Cinema #1 (the large house with several hundred seats) to the next door attached Cinema #2 (with only two hundred seats)because the picture was dying and doing no business. The picture had been specifically booked for Cinema #1 and Paramount claimed he violated the express terms of the contract. Paramount took my friend "off service" for six full months. My friend was not able to book a Paramount picture during the "off service" penalty period.

If you were a really big chain all you would have to do is promise not to do it again.

Perhaps if you went personally to their offices in sackcloth and ashes........

My girlfriend did that to me once for leaving the toilet seat up.

So question for you veterans: Will the studios insist on a full schedule at least the first week even you bring in a film on mover over basis? What if it is being split at other places?

Rare they will make you run full on a move over if it has been split...A few summer pics they may do that on.

Product up til the big 00's looks bleak. The spank shouldn't hurt as bad as it could have.

We got lucky. Though we'd like to play Step/Pineapple/007 but.... you play: you pay.

If it is split elsewhere then you will be allowed to split it when you get a film on the break or later.
