I know how you feel, Slap. I book an 800-seater that sits between two universities, but Paramount is going with a Cinemark plex. And my theatre grossed something like $50,000 the first week on BLAIR WITCH PROJECT.

On the plus side, I was finally able to get a print of MEATBALLS for one of my little towns, which should help pull him out of his October funk.

As Tim Robbins said in BULL DURHAM, "Sometimes you win; sometimes you lose; sometimes it rains."

800 prints/ they'll go to 1200 next week. Leaves us out.

Meatballs was a stupid decision on their part.

When we finally got Julia after 6 weeks we played it for 5 freaking weeks and did good business.

They are all nuts. :angry:

I never saw people not know there jobs .There opening Paranormal activity in 2 theaters 4 miles away from each other in the urban part of town. Leaves the rest of the city and THE SURROUNDING TOWNS with no theater playing the film .Up to an hour away . Even if they dont play us put one theater at one end of the city and one at the other end. I even sent them the free advice. 9 theaters in the zone they put the 2 prints next to each other. They dont care or dont know.Both are scary.
