Last week we celebrated 40 years of ‘Taxi Driver’ and thought we would find out what’s the best De Niro & Scorsese film. We received 62 votes and the stand out winner at 39% was Goodfellas from 1990, followed by Taxi Driver that only just managed to snatch second place from Casino with 24% and forth place went to Raging Bull. What we can tell by this poll is that not enough people have watched the King of Comedy, so put down what you are doing now and see De Niro, Scorsese and Jerry Lewis as you have never seen them before.

Are there any films that are unavailable for mobile cinema events? FAQs

Unfortunately, we sometimes have films that become unavailable for a variety of reasons.

Unfortunately Beetlejuice will be unavailable for all mobile cinema events for 2018. This includes ticketed and free events for both outdoor and indoor events.

Sadly Grease will be unavailable for all mobile cinema events for 2018. This includes ticketed and free events for both outdoor and indoor events.

Some reasons that a film may be unavailable:

• A film distributor may be planning a theatrical re-release of a film e.g. 3D or re-mastered version, like re-releases of Titanic & Finding Nemo. This may mean that once the new release of the film has completed its run in the cinema it will again be available for events.

• If a new film in a movie franchise is coming out, like James Bond or Batman, the film distributor will often pull all the other movies in the franchise from distribution until the new film has been released.

• An outdoor film screening may not be approved if it’s planned to screen at the Nationwide Moonlight Cinema. As they invest large sums of money in advertising campaigns and sell tickets from which the film companies derive significant revenues. So a smaller or free event may potentially diminish that income. Some films that have been rejected for this reason are, The Princess Bride, Ferris Buellers Day Off, Grease & Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

• Disney films are occasionally retired to ‘The Vault’ where they remain unavailable for several years to allow the build-up of demand. The re-releases of these films will often be a re-mastered or restored version that may in some cases get a short cinematic re-release also.

• Paid/Ticketed outdoor screenings of Universal Film titles won’t be approved, however you are permitted to screen their films to a non-paying audience.

Just because we have listed a film as unavailable doesn’t mean it’s not worth trying for as things often change and the rights may become available in the future. However when selecting a film for your event it’s always a good idea to have a second and possibly third choice lined up, just in case. There are thousands of great films to choose from and if you need help coming up with a film we can help you with our multitude of THEMED FILM LISTS, also our Top 100 films list.

As a part of Road Movies’ service we arrange the necessary film copyright clearance for you, so all you need to do is decide on a film. Some films have screening restrictions in relation to outdoor exhibition and free events etc. So it’s important that you get confirmation from Road Movie, before you start your promotions.

Copyright costs for free screenings:
The film distributor will work out the copyright cost for your free public screening after you have filled out one of our film copyright quote online forms. The cost of your film hire will be dependent on several factors.
* The location of the screening and distance to the nearest cinema.
* If the screening is outdoor or indoor.
* Estimated audience numbers and venues maximum capacity.
* Level of advertising – how heavily will this event be promoted e.g. promoted to a school group or open to everyone.
* Screen size.

Copyright costs for commercial screenings:
If you are charging admission you will need to keep a box office record for the film distributor, they will charge a base rate or a percentage (25%-35% depending on distributor) of the box office (Movie Ticket) takings whatever is the greater amount. Box office numbers need to be supplied to Road Movie either on the night of the screening or the next day.
example of the information required from your box office numbers.
80 Adults @ $15 = $1200.00
70 Concession @ $10 = $700.00
20 Seniors/Kids @ $7 = $140.00
