The general rule seems to be that one needs to be at least 4-5 miles away from an existing theatre in order to ensure availability of first run prints. Is that 4-5 miles "as the crow flies," or 4-5 miles driving distance? Also, does that rule apply to a Metropolitan area with 360k people? The building I would like to lease is 2.6mi from my competitor.

There are competion zones set up in markets by distribs.
Our 24 screen was 2 miles from a 30 screen . we did not share product with them because we were outside the zone. They however shared with a theatre 4 miles from them because they were located in the same zone.

OK. Cool. Good information. How do I find out what zones these distributors have set up? I would greatly apprecitae any contact information you might have about them (i.e.--website, telephone number, names, etc.).
