I do the booking for our theatre, have the big fat Rolodex, bulging files, catalogs, magazines, etc. If you want to know where to get it... ask and I'll do my best.

Do you deal directly with say Miramax? How did you get your contacts?

We book all our own films. For two years I listened and asked a lot of questions. I'd always call direct to the distribs and ask questions without undermining my booker. When I knew that I was going to take the leap and take it over... a savings of 8,000.00 a year leap!... I first called a bumch of theatre owners who booked themselves and asked their advice and they all said "Go for it." I've never been sorry. The week we did that I sent every film distrib rep a box with movie candy and a letter and they were 100% fine. They take my calls/return them/and even call me sometimes!It's clearly been better for my business. I get what I want or know the reason why. And I can't blame anybody but me when I don't! I think it's a much over rated science which is primarily based on relationship of trust that you'll do what you say and pay. In the age of communication this biz runs on a persons "word". Amazing. All the phone numbers are easily available. We're working on our data base and will be posting all that stuff soon. Do you want the Miramax #?
