It's my understanding that some studios will not let you split the screen with others if you are showing their film. I'm in Batesville and my oldest son used to work at the OAKS 7. I have also done some research on The Melba myself.

This seems to be mostly dependent on how long the film has been in release. We've been able to split a screen on content from Warner, Disney, Fox, Lionsgate, and Paramount. Hadn't had a situation to ask Universal or Sony to yet.

This is true within the first 3 weeks or so (longer for Disney). By the time the Oaks 7 is done playing a movie you should be able to split most movies. Keep in mind you will not be able to play a movie at the same time as the Oaks 7.

Anyone have pictures of the inside of the Oaks 7? It does look pretty blah from the outside.

I am in a similar situation. I am looking to renovate and reopen a small theater in my area and I need to upgrade to digital. The theater was built in 1942 as a single with a balcony but was split into a twin and the balcony converted into projection rooms. Since that time, it was further converted for live performances in the left theater with the right theater remaining film.

I want to upgrade the film side to digital and run second run movies and keep the left side for live performances, but have thought about using the left side during the week for television show screenings for popular shows or rerunning older popular shows. I want to use a consumer grade projector for this because I cannot do a full projector with the setup I need for live performances. Do any of you know if the studios producing tv shows will license viewings like this? Or how I would go about getting said license?

I'm actually not aware of anyone getting licenses to show television content, and I've been watching for it. I am aware of one theater that ran a really good program of TV shows on their screen before they went digital. I thought they were licensed because the screenings were marketed and attended so well. In the end, they got a cease and desist and had to stop. We tried to show football, got a cease and desist from the NFL.

The licensing for theaters is completely different from licensing for bars and restaurants.

How do you get that "theater rental"? and are there any restrictions on what I can charge for viewings of a PD film?

I am in a big city so we do TV premiers for HBO and other networks usually before the show season starts on TV .
We have a rental rate for these events they pay us to play it .
I have never played a Tv show other than this way or worked for a company that played a TV show .

I'm very interested in how to do this? I'm trying to open a single screen with special screenings of things like this.

Hey Buddyd; There are no restrictions on PD films. You can do anything you want. There are at least two lists on the internet. Google them.
