How many tickets do I get for my Private Premiere sponsorship?

Each $2,500 Buy Out is ONE SHOWING of the film, in ONE AUDITORIUM (about 250 seats) within a theater. For example, if your multiplex theater has 10 auditoriums, you are buying out one showing in one auditorium in that theater (i.e., the 7:00 pm showing on Thursday night).

In many cases we will be able to negotiate a discount in the particular theater(s) chosen.
