I just had a buddy of mine tell me that he was able to sign up for Sony's modified lease/VPF deal. He only had to pay $5000 up front and about $1000 a month to get the equipment and get into the VPF program there. May be worth looking into if you missed out on the VPF deals that ended sign-ups in September.

Sony extends to March 2013. Question is has there been any extensions at GDC and CBG? How is Sony to work with? I'd heard thety could be difficult for smaller exhibs?

I would not be shocked if any of the programs that didn't fill out their entire screen allocation (everybody but GDC, from what I hear) end up reopening their programs. Maybe even lowering the minimum average cost to allow the S2K based projectors to qualify.

"if any of the programs that didn't fill out their entire screen allocation (everybody but GDC, from what I hear) end up reopening their programs."

The reality is that these mfgs made "screen allocation" deals, contracts, with the mfgs to enable them to go into production. If they have not filled out the allocation then they'll keep going because they get $ from the deal also. But n-o way will the distribs make any new VPF deals, or extend the ones they did make.

You're already wrong, based solely on the fact that Sony extended the sign-up period for their VPF program. Whether the studios allow other VPF programs to extend or not is certainly questionable, but it isn't out of the question all together.
