Trailer Requirements 29 Sep 2001 11:42 #2055

Are theatres required to play ALL trailers that come with a film?

Or can you pick, lets say, the 3 hottest, most anticipated films' trailers, and shelve the others?

Scary Movie 2 had 10 trailers, and lets face it, that's too many!

Any input would be appreciated!

At the Skyline drive-in where I work, we pick and choose what goes on the screen: features, trailers, or otherwise. Many times we choose to SHOW NO TRAILERS AT ALL!
Our customers have told us many times how they hate trailers, but they love the intermission snack bar films.

Sometimes you are ordered to play a trailer, the film co's always want you and beg you to play a trailer that's attached but we always pick our trailers based on what we want to promote. We always deattach trailers from films that are moving on and keep them because trailers are hard to come by. Often trailers are attached or included because certain films cross promote very well.

I agree, Mike.

And by the way, why play the trailer to a film that you don't plan playing or won't be able to get!
