Hi, does anyone have a booker that they highly recommend? I've looked over the directories on this site but I'd love to have a couple recommendations before I started making inquiries. Thanks for your time!

I've said it before, so I'll say it again (this is from an earlier post I made in another forum on this site):

Don't use a booker who charges you a percentage of your gross. Your booker should be paid a flat per week per screen fee regardless of your box office performance. That being said, the type of environment your theatre operates in will provide a basis for the fee. 1st run competitive zone screens should cost more than 1st run non-competitive zone screens, move-over or sub run should be less than first run, rep screens cost more and midnight series or kids series should be an additional cost.

Hire a booker who you feel you can work well with. If he or she isn't interested in your business or you don't feel you can have a conversation with him/her, what is the point. On the otherhand, know that your booker has more clients than just you.

Ask for references. Call the references and talk to them about their bookers. Ask who else they used before or since the booker who gave that person as a reference.

When looking for a booker, don't call on Monday or Tuesday and expect them to talk to you about becoming a client. They are busy working for their clients. Call on Wed, Thur or Friday.

You've got to do your part as the theatre owner. That means paying the bills on time and sending in box office reports promptly. Studios appreciate this and keep track of it. Doing this will help your booker get you the films you want.

And now for a plug. I am a huge fan of Doug Endicott and Mark Schulte at Exhibitor Support Partnership in LA. Give them a call at 323-654-2799
