There are a slate of cinemas already on board to show the film. Below is a list we’ve put together of additional key cinemas we want to secure along with contact information for their programmers (the people who decide which films to show). Please look for your local cinema and shoot the programmer a quick email, give them a call or better yet head over and ask to see the Programmer or General Manager. Also below is a template letter you can use to email these people. If you can’t find your local cinema on the list, give us a shout.
If your local cinema is a Vue or an Odeon (esp. if it’s a Vue) it is definitely worth heading over as they don’t make contact info available online.
Thanks so much for your help! Once you’ve reached out to the cinema please email, our Outreach Coordinator, Molly at email@example.com to let us know how it went.
