LOL at this 'Liberal Arts' Marquee  

source


Also box office news for Liberal Arts. It hasn't done too spectacularly so I don't know how far it will expand really. There is a list of scheduled theaters here but that already seems to have changed somewhat.

Anyway, per BOM, it made $27,435 the first weekend at four theaters for a per-theater-average of $6,859. I'm not sure I think they did the best marketing with it? But oh well... hopefully most people can catch it on VOD. And those that have had the opportunity to see it have enjoyed it (and Zac), based on their tweets.


Their quote was stupid so I fixed it.

That might be the greatest marquee of all time.

I saw it in theaters and thoroughly enjoyed it.

& there were these really old ladies in the theater watching the movie (Idek how they knew about the movie lol) and they were like THAT'S ZAC EFRON?!?!? after the movie during the credits.

The interesting thing is that the theater thinks advertising Zac will benefit their ticket sales.

I don't understand why everyone thinks he is unrecognizable. As the photo above shows, he looks totally like himself. These people have not been paying attention, they must only remember him from HSM.

So, they charge for parking before 10 a.m.?

He is totally recognizable, and still a cutie-pie.

As for as advertising, I'd like to say "what advertising?"

"what advertising?"

I mean, of course, putting Zac on the marquee with the lead actors.

Attention, studio execs! Zac Efron can open a movie bigger than Clint Eastwood! Zac's CStC opened at $12.4 million, Clint's latest opened at $12.3 million. Sign this boy up!

After the RNC, I don't know how many people REALLY like Clint Eastwood now.

How do I watch it by VOD? The movie theater here charges $11.

If you're a US Cable subscriber, providers like Time Warner and/or Comcast will offer it at $6.99 for a 48 hour rental.

What about Cox Communications?

Never heard of Cox, but I'd imagine if it's a US cable provider with same-day as theatrical release access, that too would likely work.

Yes, they are a US cable provider, and occassionally, i seem to recall seeing something about same day as theatrical release films, but it was only for a few specific films. I know that they have On Demand. There's even a button on the remote for that. But that is like for HBO or Showtime On Demand or even for movies that you can pay to watch, but they are movies that are out on DVD. I guess I'll have to call them and find out. I did send an e-mail to the local "indie" movie house and asked if they were gonna show it. They said there were no plans right now, but that they might. October calendar wasn't out yet. They did show MAOW there, so I'm hoping.
