What is Theatrical On Demand®?
Theatrical On Demand® allows individuals like you the opportunity to organize and promote film screenings in movie theaters across the country. With Theatrical On Demand®, you can bring the film you want to see play in your local movie theater.
It is easy. You just pick the date, time, and theater where you want to host your screening. Gathr Films will set everything up for you. It doesn't cost you anything to host a Theatrical On Demand screening. You don’t have to pay any screening room rental or exhibition fee. All you have to do is promote the film and get people to reserve tickets.
How do Theatrical On Demand® screenings happen?
Theatrical On Demand® screenings can only happen if a minimum number of people reserve tickets before a screening expires. Movie Captains, as we call them, have anywhere from 5 weeks to 4-months to promote the film in their city and get enough people to reserve tickets before the screening expires.
On every screening page, you'll find an update that shows you the number of current reservations, the number of additional reservations needed to tip the screening, as well as how much time remains before that screening request expires.
When enough people reserve tickets to a screening before time expires, the screening takes place. If the minimum number of reservations is not met, the screening does not take place and nobody is charged.
How do I reserve/purchase a ticket to a movie?
Scroll over the movie you want to see and click VIEW SCREENING DETAILS, then click either RESERVE YOUR SEAT NOW or BUY YOUR TICKET.

What is the difference between reserving a ticket and purchasing a ticket?
When a movie does not have a GreenLight, your option is to reserve a ticket by pre-authorizing your credit card. You are just reserving your seat but aren't actually being charged.
When a movie has a GreenLight, your ticket purchase will be processed immediately and your reservation will turn into a purchased ticket. An email will be sent to you containing a link to download and print your ticket.
What does Green Light mean?
A Green Light means the screening is definitely going to happen. This happens once the minimum number of reservations for a screening has been met.
When will my credit card be charged?
Your credit card will only be charged once your screening has met the minimum number of reservations and has a GreenLight.

The movie I want to see isn't screening in my area. How do I request a screening?

Who can request a Theatrical On Demand® screening?
Anyone can Captain a movie screening. Whether you're an individual, an organization, a social club, or a theater, you can request to Captain a screening. It's fun, simple, and only takes a few minutes.
What can I do to make my screening happen?
Tell your friends, family, and anyone else you think would be interested in seeing the film. Great ways to do this are emailing the screening page and sharing on Facebook and Twitter. The more ways you spread the word about your movie event, the more likely it will happen.
