I was set to wondering if any of the theater owners out there do music tie-ins before the show. I've been to many movie houses that play music before showtime and thought that it might an iteresting thing to do, matching the music to the movie.

Good idea but ASCAP and BMI will be down your throat most Chains get their music from a service that pays the liscense fees.

"The land is wide and the emperor is far away." An old Chinese saying that applies to ASCAP and BMI. In case you've never had them enter and discuss your illegal playing of a cd then count yourself lucky. Truth is that it's illegal and they will lisc you or take you down. Look at Napster: that's who took them on. We don't tie-in, we have a 5 deck cd player with compilations on random and speakers throughout our lobbies. That's the extent of our tie-ins.

I use to use store bought generic music for background---then ASCAP came strolling in with a bill---they are not nice--and no recourse--you just pay with a smile. After that lesson, I strickly use Movie Tunes---Not always happy with the music they pick for the month--but it is free, a new CD each month---and no worries about licensing as it is not required to have an ASCAP license to play. Also they do throw an advertising spot in for concessions and movie passes.
