Here's how we can really support the movie :-

A lot of you probably have UGC cinema cards - you pay 17.50 month and you can go see as many films as you like.

Use the card to buy tickets for Serenity that you won't use. Say you go and see it at 1 o'clock - when you're coming out get another ticket for the show at 9. You don't have to go but UGC have to give Universal money

On your lunch break? Buy a ticket for a show at 3 - ticket in the bin - back to work - more money for Uni - no cost to you, do it as often as you can and we get a sequel

Do you have to buy a ticket when you have a card?

I'm pretty sure they just give you the ticket. If you use the card, I believe the studio gets nothing (but could be wrong).

UGC in the UK does this movie subscription card for £10.99 GBP a month, and you just turn up and purchase tickets (hand in the card and they hand your card back with tiket for the film you want to see.

However, you are tracked, so If you are going to book 20 times for `Serenity`, it will be fairly obvius from the `used` ticket stubbs and database that you have wasted their time (and so the ticket won`t count)

Really?

Alternatively you could just watch it 20 times. If it is not good enough to rewatch then it doesn't deserve the extra income. I hope and expect that it will be good enough.

I'm sure it will be good enough to watch over and over - but who has the free time to live in a cinema?

Ticket stubbs are the cinemas proof of actual attendance - not the purchase of tickets (however the purchase is seperate)

Yeah but if they've sold tickets to a show surely they have to turn that money over to a studio - I always figured they took the stubs just to make sure you paid.

What I mean is - do they go "Well we sold 10 tickets but only 9 showed up so lets give the studio the money for the 9 guys"?

Think about it this way, if a company or studio was to purchase 1000`s of tickets in different cinemas, it would effect how that movies viewing figures. however if they go on the ticket stubbs, the cinema will get a better picture of how many seats were sold *and* attended, giving a more accurate viewing figure.

How often do you book a ticket at a cinema and on the booking screen, quite a few of the seats are booked - yet when the film starts those seats are empty? This is something that I have personally observed - tese are not reserved for any other reasons. So do people really not turn up a lot of the times (even after paying?)

Its also the 12A phenomenon - little scrotes buying tickets for a film they are allowed into that is on the same side of the multiplex as that 15 or 18.

Saw a sneak of Sin City the other week, and halfway through three poster-children for birth control tried to sneak into. Into a suprise sneak preview that every off-duty cinema worker was in.

I half expected a Jabba-esque laugh to break out before they were chased out.
