Hi.

I'm very new to this industry. I have the opportunity the acquire a theatre with three screens and equipment. It has been vandalized but the equipment is mostly in tact. If I'm going to show Spanish foreign films, can I still use the 35 mm equipment the theatre already has? How can I find a film booker? Where can I find a projection engineer in Texas to inspect what I have and possibly operate these machines? I'm at a cross road...power lines have been stolen, two of the screens have been slashed. It's going to be an investment and a lot of work. I just need to know what I'm up against with moving forward. If I can still use the projectors - I'll do it. But if I have to upgrade--- it may be a deal breaker. Please help me...

Bob I am going to have to disagree with your recommendation of Frank Rash. First, you claimed that you did not have to worry about converting to digital until the end of this year based on Mr. Rash's recommendation. Second, you said he told you that you needed to play Anchorman 2 despite your problems with movies like this. I believe you said that you were disgusted to play it.

Rusty, read the other current posts for booker ideas.

You will have to install digital equipment. Do not even think of opening without.

Equipment: Sonic is fine but you might be too far away from them. Look up Andrew at the Wellbourne Cinema in Alvin, TX. (281) 756-7166 He just recently reopened a 4 screen.

Jack, regarding converting that was my thought not Frank's and he recommended "Anchorman" based on what it was doing in the rest of the country. At the time it was rated PG-13.

Bob,

This what you said on two occasions: "My booker tells me I can run film for about a year. That was on October 12, 2013. www.bigscreenbiz.com/forums/502-movie-th....html?id=39205#40352

and

"I just took over a 35mm theatre and my booker says I have about a year yet before I have to worry about digital. Remember, I'm the guy who said several years ago that we still have two or three years of film left and some of you mocked me." That was on November 1, 2013. www.bigscreenbiz.com/forums/502-movie-th....html?id=39208#40394

Hmmm.......

Re: Anchorman 2: you should have known what kind of film this was. We all know what you will not play and were very surprised that you played it. You have claimed your booker knows what you like to play. My guess is you played it because you had little else to play on film.

Jack: My booker was agreeing with me on something I already said to him and was using him to add "authority" to my statement. Regarding "Anchorman" I was not familiar with Farrell's work and it was rated PG-13 so I thought I'd take the chance. I know I never cared for him once he left SNL.

Don't forget - he also told you there was no 35mm prints made for "Son Of God", which was not the case. I played a 35mm print in one of the theatres I book...
