What cinemas are showing the re-release of psycho?
Does anyone know of a cinema in the Glasgow area that is showing the re-release of Psych or how I would find out what cinemas are showing it? Have looked online but haven't found anywhere.
Question answered by Eruanno
It will be showing in any arthouse/independent cinemas so find one of these near Glasgow and it should showing there (Odeon and Cineworld aren't arthouse so I don't know if they are showing it). The only place I know for a fact is showing is Showroom cinema but that doesn't really help you because that's in Sheffield. If you do end up going to Sheffield to see it (not that you will but I'll write this anyway) here's when it's showing:
> Friday 16th April - 15:30 20:20
> Saturday 17th April - 15:40 20:20
> Sunday 18th April - 13:00 18:20
> Monday 19th April - 15:40 20:20
> Tuesday 20th April - 13:30 18:00
> Wedenesday 21st April - 15:40 20:20
> Thursday 22nd April - 13:40 18:30
These are the times listed in the April edition of Showroom Cinema Guide but the times might change between now and it showing.
How do people manage to find copies of movies to upload while the same flicks are showing in cinemas?
While block busting movies are concurrently showing in cinemas all over the country, the same movies (DVD rip 480p quality !) are able to be downloaded in file sharing webs. How did they do it ? Furthermore, occasionally a movie is downloadable even BEFORE it is shown in cinemas.
Question answered by Anthony
When its Uploaded to the internet before the movie hits the cinemas whoever uploaded it had access to a copy of the movie which means he work with the movie company. now as to how they upload it while its in the movies they bootleg the movies and create a torrent file for widespread download. Also many people who work with companies like Redbox or Blockbuster have access to a device that allows them to take the disc and make illegal copies of the movie and upload it to the internet
How much money do cinemas get from tickets?
I've always wondered, how much money do cinemas make from TICKETS (what percentage share or however you wish to explain it). People say they make most money via popcorn, sweets and drinks but I wondered what share of tickets (if any) they take.
Nowhere online gave me a decent answer - any help would be highly appreciated!
Question answered by Mitchell
Ticket sales are a tad tricky. Most of the larger studios have a set percentage which is between 65-80 percent(going to the studio) for the first few weeks.
So on the first week of a film release 80% of the ticket sale goes back to the studio. The percentage then equalizes during the length of a film's run so by week 5 the percentage might be more like 65% going back to the studios. This is why movie studios place such a huge emphasis on the first few opening weeks of a movie.
A movie that has a very good chance of being successful such as the subsequent Harry Potter movies, Twilight, Pirates of the C...The studio may keep 80% for a longer period of time. Also if a film is not some blockbuster (that is generally a film that is considered "arty") the studio may drop the initial percentage split right down to 50/50 or even 25/75. This is to give the cinemas a greater incentive to show a film that might not be a huge draw. As you already know the theaters make the bulk of their profits from selling concessions.
It is easy to sell popcorn and soda by the arm full to a bunch of preteens fawning over sparkly vampires. Therefore let the studios take 80% of ticket sales.
Not so easy to the 17 adults who have shown up to watch a film about 2 guys driving around California Wine country. Therefore studios if you want us to show your film you better make up for the loss of Twizzlers and Dr. Pepper so how about we make that a 50/50 split on ticket sales.

Probably around £10 (less for students) in the major cinemas such as VUE and ODEON. Go on a Wednesday though if you're on the Orange phone network for 2-4-1 cinema tickets and take snacks and drinks with you to save some cash!

Usually movies with so much hype, if they do well, will stay in theaters for more than a month, give or take.
I would suggest calling all of your local cinemas and asking how long they plan to run the feature. That will give you a general time frame, and you can set up your plans to go see it.

Can anyone please tell me how to reach Sangam cinemas from Sayani, Ayanavaram through MTC buses? The name of the stop near Sangam cinemas at the least ???

There are no direct buses from Sayani/Ayanavaram to Sangam Cinemas:
Take any of the following buses from Sayani: 27D, S27D, M20B, X120, L22A, 37C, S23V and alight at Dasaprakash/Dharmaprakash, Sangam cinemas is just 15 minutes walk from there.
Another option is to take 23C, M22, S23C or L23C from Ayanavaram BS and alight at Dasaprakash/Dharmaprakash, Sangam cinemas is just 15 minutes walk from there.
By the way Sangam theatre is the bus stop name, it is also refered as Flowers road.

How long are the trailers at Showcase Cinemas usually?
I am going to see a film at Showcase Cinemas (if you hadn't already guessed :P), and the film starts at 3:10pm according to the website. Our bus is timetabled to get in at 3pm, and from there it is about a 6-10 minute walk to the cinema, so if bus arrives on schedule (hopefully), we should get there by no later than 3:10pm, or maybe a few minutes after.
What time does the actual film usually start? Will we miss anything?
Thanks a lot
Question answered by Michael D
All cinemas have at least 15 minutes of adverts, usually more. You'll probably get in to the screen as the product ads finish and the films ads begin.
How do cinemas obtain right to show movies?
I'm doing a business plan of a small cinema as part of my A-Level course, and I basically need to know how cinemas are able to publicly shows movies, how, where and who do they get their permission from???

Local councils issue performance licences that enable cinemas to exhibit any certified film. There are different rule for R18 productions. The total number of seats in a cinema need to be known by the council in order to issue a licence. I used to run a cinema that had a 3001 capacity over 12 screens.
The actual films are leased to the cinema chains by the distributor. Each cinema chain has a 'Film Buying' department and it is their job each week to secure a certain number of prints for their own companies exhibition. Each distributor knows the exact layout of each screen in every single cinema in the country (UK) and they agree a cut of ticket sales with each chain. As an example...
Distributor has a new blockbuster. Chain wants 2 prints per site. Distributor will take 95% of ticket sales for each print for the first week of release.
The second week will then be re-negotiated the following week but the distributor cut will get lower and lower.
Every night, every cinema would be contacted by a company called Nielson EDI who would record the attendance and nett figures for all movies shown that day. This is how the weekly National Box Office chart is calculated.
The above example is at a basic level as there are a few other things to take into account but this should do for your business plan. If you want more info please contact me.
You can see from the figures above why the cost of food products from a cinema is relatively expensive. They need to charge a premium price in order to make the business viable. It was always very difficult trying to explain to a customer why this was the case!!!
I have given you a few links below that might help you.
Good luck with your business plan.
