Hello:
RE: A discount theatre books a film the day it is released for video..
Question: How many of the distributors will book flat fee and allow to be played via bluray/dvd? I was told at least a few and the fee would be around $250…is that a week or total engagement?
Thank you

There are studios that will allow you to play it on blue ray the terms are usually $250 vs 35 % for the entire run .

Yep: each distrib does it differently. One thing I am hearing is that distribs are now demanding you get a digital cinema projector/ server so they can control the product more. Even for older stuff. But who knows? Take it day by day.

Thank you for the replies. I am finishing the last year on a lease of a small discount theatre. I am operating with 35mm and self book. The distributors are each being so mysterious about the final d date or die. I assume they just don’t know for sure. Many of the filsm I show are also out on dvd. I could continue on if they would all allow me to play off a blu ray. I would lose some revenue but could stay open. I just cannot justify or swing the switch over even at 30k a screen. It would have to be under ten per screen for me to be able to pay out of pocket. One of the distributors straight out suggested I just close.

many of the distribs will let you play a ble ray or dvd if it is out on dvd already. I think it would not be wise to wait for them "all " to allow something. If you are leasing will your landlord go digital for you? Other wise it's going to be over at some point. M
