Sorry. I thought it was midnight shows you were talking about. Ok well it sounds like you guys are talking about interlocks since again theaters can not cancel a digital movie if they have VPF. Regal tells managers to cancel another show to interlock 35mm prints in other theaters. It does piss people off, but they figure, and in some cases they are right, that cancelling a show for something like a Twilight movie will make them more money and those people that came for the cancelled show will just go to another movie.

rufusjack, hopefully now I'm on topic with what you guys are talking about now lol. By the way, your are very right about Disney. I remember we tried to cancel the 9:00 show of Toy Story 3D and they freaked out. Regal's system updates Fandango pretty quickly and when they saw that it wasnt there anymore, they made us put it back.

Nope, 100% digital location.

OK Newbie here chiming in...
What exactly is VPF?
...
Are you saying that the film distributors actually "tell You" when you have to run the picture?
...
And digital - Is digital distributed over an in-house network? This would reinforce my suspicion that Digital is downloaded (which would seem to suggest that downloading would make the movie even more prone to pirating???).
...
Anyway..
..
I'll crawl back into the corner..
