You cant polish a turd no matter how hard you try, and thats all that Sept and October had to offer. I'm glad to be out. I booked nothing but concerts for the two months after studying the schedule back in July/Aug. The only surprise I have seen is the Gameplan which did better than I expected. Cant say I make money doing concerts but its better than coming in every evening to an empty theater. I cant wait for holidays either, I think the lineup is looking very good for this season.

So far it looks like October is going to be a repeat of September for us. Weak product and a very disinterested movie going public. It was a very smart move on Disney's part to release Game Plan right in the middle of this black hole.

This weekend in my small town we had football homecoming, a very popular contra dance (not my choice but it was packed), a big vaudeville review, 550 folks at the Wailing Jennies concert, the ever busy Friday night art gallery walk, a Pie and Story telling festival, and the Church Street Festival a arts and parade event. I think there's just too much good stuff to do!

I would add to that: And extremely weak product--or at least product with a severely limited target audience.

Or the good ones do not go wide enough for me! We are right on that bubble. If it's good an less than 2000 prints: we are out. URG.

We've been doing rather horribly this weekend with Death At A Funeral. It's probably one of our worst weekends in a long time.

Leeler is right in saying even a halfway decent week would be awesome. My numbers were up considerably this week with The Brave One and 3:10 to Yuma, but they are still quite horrible. Nevertheless, I was pleased. Maybe families will come out next week for The Game Plan.

And....has anyone noticed how many R movies are out lately? Three weeks in a row I've played mostly all R rated and it hurts a lot!

I think Bee Movie will break the spell...only two more weeks...

old horror movies? How old? That's an amazing idea! Where do you get them? Are they DVD or film?

Very cool! Btw I have to visit your place when I'm there-it looks great- like the plans for Pelham! I work in ny a lot.

Everything from Frankenstein (1931) to the Blair Witch Project (1999). Funny - Young Frankenstein and Army of Darkness to Classic horror - The Shining.

Do stop by! 914-738-3161 ask for Clay! we are only one screen right now but hopefully we get the money to add the other two screens and can break ground in the next year.
