I wanted to check and see if anybody has had the same problem we have to deal with. The theatre we are hoping to line up at can not say at all with any certainty that they are even going to get the movie. It has to do with the distributors, and until the theatre knows they are going to have it, they (and we) are not allowed to advertise it beyond a poster or two. We are running a charity raffle and costume contest at the largest mall in the region, we have set the draw date for May 15th, because the release date on the 16th is a given at least. We also have permission from the mall owners to line by the theatre for 24 hours prior to the tickets being sold. What date wil that be? We have no idea. Can we find out? Nope. Its the distributors again. We are working on a lot of things that don't depend on when the ticket sale date will be, and the theatre is letting us sell raffle tickets regardless of them even getting the film, but its still annoying trying to arrange things like a tent to set up for rain protection, getting food for a bar-b-que etc. So is this a Canada only thing, or are other FF chapters having this same problem? Has anyone encountered this problem and found a work-around?
