THEATER EVENT FAQ
Can we hold our event in a church, event center, or playhouse theater?
During the theatrical window, contractually we are only allowed to show the film in theaters that have first run films (i.e. theaters that play new films regularly).
Can I get tickets at a discounted price?
We currently have set, special group ticket rates at AMC. Regal, and Cinemark, pending theater approval. If your theater is not one of these chains we will need to wait for an official quote from the theater as ticket pricing is on a per-theater basis.
UNPLANNED offers your organization, church, business, or school the opportunity to host a local Red-Carpet Movie Event in your city with a theater buyout.Also you have the option to host smaller group events opening weekend.
Can I book the theater event on my own, going direct to the theater?
In order to schedule and deliver the digital film file to a theater, all booking must go through or be approved by our team.
Can we sell food/drinks at the theater where we are hosting?
The theater’s concessions are the only concessions available for guests to have in the theater. Some theaters allow outside concessions; however, this is on a per-theater policy basis and fees may apply. Prior approval is always necessary.
How do I pay for my group event?
We will send you the payment options and procedures upon receiving the quote from your theater.
What does an opening week theater buyout event include?
We are only able to book groups that qualify for a full theater buyout. The smallest auditorium size varies per theater, so please let us know your group size. If your group does not qualify for a full theater buyout, our team will direct you on how to purchase tickets to accommodate your group.
