We are picking up Lone Survivor on Friday and I expect it to do very brisk business, even going into its third weekend.

"In a historic step for Hollywood, Paramount Pictures has become the first major studio to stop releasing movies on film in the United States."

Naturally they didn't mention they are still shipping 35mm prints to foreign countries.

I don't believe for a minute that you would have any problems selling tickets to an American flag waving war movie in Oklahoma. I'm in a semi rural community about 40 minutes from Houston and I expect we will sell 600+ tickets to Lone Survivor this weekend.

Anchorman 2 was a piece of filth that Paramount should not have released in any format. I had two nights when no one showed up to watch the thing.

Bob,

I am surprised you even played it based on your previous posts regarding bad language and sexual content. I have to wonder why you played it ? People under 35 would have driven 30 miles in a heartbeat to see it on opening weekend.

I saw it about 10 days ago at a Muvico theater in St. Pete and it had a good crowd still. It was played on film and I felt a bit cheated with the shaky at times screen and dirty film.

Yeah, Lone Survivor is doing excellent. We actually have an even more strict R-rated policy than the standard MPAA policy. We do not allow ANY person under 17, even with a parent.

I actually think it is already paying dividends as we have had a ton of support both in person and on our facebook page about it and how many adults had stopped going to R rated flicks because of all the kids.

It appears that Anchorman 2 will not be Paramount's last 35mm movie.

blogs.indiewire.com/theplaylist/paramoun...nterstellar-20140128

According to the article, they are making an exception for Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, which comes out in November 2014. It's unknown if they will be making similar exceptions for How To Train Your Dragon 2, or Transformers 4, which both open this summer. Nolan is a huge proponent of 35mm movies, so apparently he demanded that Paramount strike a limited number of prints in 35mm.

Should be interesting to see how many film-based theatres survive until November, so they can play it.

Are you film only folks seeing much higher guarantees on movies? I have heard of stories as high as $400. Paying $400 for a movie that is being released onto DVD in 3 days........

Narrow Gauge,

What about guarantees on move-over product? Used to be $150 to at most $250. I am hearing that some are now imposing $400 guarantees.

I took this press release as total disinformation... I mean... who freaking cares? They're going to make a few prints....? oooh... how silly and stupid is this? And who is going to play this film at the last few theatres that are left with 35 mm? I have a set up but would I play it on 35 mm if it was available? No. Paramount was telling the truth when they said "no more 35mm" ..... the film sinks, get over it.

WB is charging a minimum 400.00 guarantee but maybe not to Narrow Gauge as he's a nice little busy college town with no problems selling seats. But smaller grossing theatres? They want a minimum of 400.00 rental and that's east and west coast fact checked.

Universal wanted a $600 guarantee vs 40% from me last week to play "Lone Survivor". Digital with VPF. This is only the second time in 1 1/2 years I had the feeling I am at a disadvantage with VPF's. Save to say we won't be playing Universal movies for a while.
