This indicates confidence, this indicates money to spend, this indicates economic activity near to bursting at the seams.

You'd never know about the state of the economy based on MSM reports.

"During the early weeks of a film's release, the studio's cut can be as high as 90 percent in some cases; at the end of a long run, this ratio can inverted, providing 90 percent to the cinema-owners and only 10 percent to the studios."

So if a film is a dog early in its release, but is nominated for, or maybe wins, an Academy Award, the theater can still profit big later on. They can make their money in the "back end", so to speak.

BurbankKarl was claiming that Miramax engages in this practice, paying theater owners for big blocks of tieckets which nobody will use. The theater owners do not stand to benefit in any way from posting "Sold Out" signs for showings that almost no one has bought tickets for. They don't care what movie wins an Academy Award; they'll just re-show whichever ones do. It's the studios that have a huge cash outlay in production costs for certain high profile films, and need to show profits on most of those big ticket films, or they'll have trouble getting financing for future ones.

Theater owners profit from selling tickets and having live junk-food buying people show up at the theater to actually use the tickets. They want to get rid of unpopular movies as quickly as possible, so they can use their theater space to show movies which WILL sell tickets.

No one is going to see this pile of trash.

That won't stop the liars in the media from fabricating a nice little success story, however. After all, part of marketing cultural Stalinism involves making official party ideology appear mainstream.

Has anyone thought about this???? Maybe the theater manager was ashamed of this movie, Brokeback Mountain, so he decided to just turn on the SOLD OUT sign so that no one could buy another ticket to see it?

Yes, it's true.

WalMart and these others are in a very real way responsible for the absence of inflation.

Too, just in time inventory controls, and just in time labor. These keep inflationary pressures quiescent. Low inflation means more sustainability to growth. (We don't want rapid employment growth.)

Price stability means longer recovery. Bernanke answered perfectly to the Senate committee "Yes I believe in the dual mandate..." What utter rubbish. Sustainable output growth and employment are a function of price stability. But Ben just smiled. So much for that 'Im really apolitical' stuff he's been selling.

Be not afraid.

Yes, American profligacy should be a concern. But the metrics we employ are often ill-derived: spending (consumer durables are storehouses of value), saving (we don't mark much of our 'savings' to market), etc.

The current account deficit is not problematic. In fact, the know of no 'sequential causal relationship' between capital flows and spending. We just can't say at all that the capital account is a function of the current account...

Our national debt, taken alone, is staggering. Even so, we have a 12 trillion dollar economy, which continues to post non-inflationary output growth numbers above the long term trend, and in excess of the budget deficit.

However, that won't keep the Hollywood PC-crowd of liberals and gays from voting it an Oscar just to give the finger to the rest of the country.

Hey, the movie industry has already noted several Left-leaning movies aren't making they money they should be. If there is anything Hollywood worships above all else it's making money and when the studios and movie theater owners don't make a profit that's when the studio heads will start to realize that the average American moviegoer wants a movie that entertains and not preaches the Leftist line. Ask Natalie Maines what happened to the Dixie Chicks when her remarks about President Bush effectively destroyed the success of that group....

"...and when the studios and movie theater owners don't make a profit that's when the studio heads will start to realize that the average American moviegoer wants a movie that entertains and not preaches the Leftist line."

The studio heads used to know that, know it now, and will continue to know it. Hasn't made a damned bit of difference so far. There have been an increasing number of liberal/left wing movies released over the past six years or so. And they continue to be released.

"Ask Natalie Maines what happened to the Dixie Chicks when her remarks about President Bush effectively destroyed the success of that group....

I don't need to ask Natalie anything. I am quite familiar with what happened to the Dixie Chicks. After suffering the initial smackdown, these twits have come back a bit, claiming their "crossover" strategy is working ("we were never only about Nashville"), and some of the radio stations which banned them have returned them to the playlists. As far as I'm concerned, I wish them nothing but failure.

Actually, the studios do send out auditors to theaters to make sure that the number of tickets sold for a show match the number of people who attended. I worked in a movie theater in high school and I saw this happen a few times.

Has anyone on this forum actually SEEN the movie? I've been reading a lot of sniggering gay jokes worthy of the average eighth grader.

Personally, I liked the movie. And the theater I saw at in (in the middle of a pretty conservative suburban area) was packed. I don't know what the sexual preferences of every single member of the audience was; my wife and I are both straight and we both thought BBM was a thoughtful, beautifully written, acted and directed film about two people caught up by something they can't understand.

Don't know but the numbers BM has been drawing are hardly anything to brag about. Rush Limbaugh has 5million listeners minimum at any moment (and more over the course of 3 hours, even I miss some of the show at lunch).

5million x $8 a ticket = $40million audience at any moment. Yet his show is ignored by the media and they almost always misreport what happens on his show.

The MSM doesn't care what your audience share is, it is all about claiming "victory" on the flimsiest of evidence. Remember Michael Moore's "top grossing documentary outside of IMAX, not factored for inflation" statistic?

No matter his motive he would be putting his job in jeopardy...Hollywood doesn't own theaters.

Either motive is just as valid as the other. As a matter of fact, if this story is even true, and I doubt that it is because it makes little sense, the idea that some redneck put up a sign in order to stop people from seeing the big evil gay movie is more reasonable than some big conspiracy involving the production company of the movie and Hollywood and the owner of this particular theater getting together to make fake numbers.

Why would they do it THAT way anyway? Makes no sense...they could just fudge the numbers. And as pointed out, this isn't happening because the numbers for this movie aren't that high.

This movie isn't propaganda, it's just a movie, plain and simple. I haven't seen it yet. My husband and I are going to go see it this weekend...so I'll hold my judgment of the movie 'til then...unlike many of you here.

Your only response is a rhetorical question and an insult? You're goin to have to do better than that.

The cinema employee would be risking his job either way. His motives, whether to supress sales or exaggerate them, are completely irrelevant in this regard.

But the idea that Hollywood would conspire with cinema managers to put up Sold Out signs, forgoing possible sales, so that they can give some sort of word-of-mouth impression that sales are high, rather than simply cooking the numbers, which would be a hundred times easer and a thousand times more effective, is beyond ridiculous.

Personally, I believe the story is false. I think that wild stories like this should be met with a bit more skepticism than what has been displayed here.

Not an insult if it's true.

The idea that a lowly ticket seller would take it upon himself to turn on the 'sold out' sign is ridiculous. It seemed so obvious to me that I thought everyone would grasp that at once.

Sorry, I'll slow down next time.

After re-reading your reply, I see I need to slow down for this response too.

The insinuation in the original story, as told on air, was that the Theater Manager, or higher, made the call to turn on the sign. I think nearly everyone realized that.

Readers of this thread, if there are any still left who are still interested in a nothing movie, will find it interesting that two brand new FR members, who have posted only to this thread, seemed to miss that salient point. Surely YOU two don’t have an agenda, do you?

Re the made up part, I’m sorry you’re too busy to read the whole short story.

It has just nominated for 5 Oscars. Or some such number. That's for a controversial movie that few have seen, and lends credence to the idea that there has been manipulation of attendance numbers to further an agenda.

And either way, it's not an argument.

The idea that a lowly ticket seller would take it upon himself to turn on the 'sold out' sign is ridiculous.

Yes it is.

Even more ridiculous is the idea that a Hollywood higher-up would call a lowly ticket office and convince them to forgo possible sales by putting up a Sold Out sign, which could have no possible beneficial effect other than to create some sort of impression upon the relatively small collection of people who witnessed it that the movie is more successful than it actually is.

Both ideas are so ridiculous that I'm inclined to believe that the story is just plain untrue. The storyteller is either lying or mistaken.

It seemed so obvious to me that I thought everyone would grasp that at once.

That your conclusion was obvious to you is not at all persuasive.

Sorry, I'll slow down next time.

After re-reading your reply, I see I need to slow down for this response too.


I'm just wondering at this point if you're ever going to get around to posting something that resembles an actual argument, rather than the sort of insults and hand-waving that I've seen from you so far.

The insinuation in the original story, as told on air, was that the Theater Manager, or higher, made the call to turn on the sign. I think nearly everyone realized that.

As did I. I know what the original story was insinuating but I also realize that the bare facts of the story don't necessarily warrant that insinuation. For some reason you seem to think that I'm bound to draw a conclusion that is in agreement with the original caller, although I don't know why.

Readers of this thread, if there are any still left who are still interested in a nothing movie, will find it interesting that two brand new FR members, who have posted only to this thread, seemed to miss that salient point. Surely YOU two don’t have an agenda, do you?

Purple Pain is my wife. She stumbled upon this message board yesterday, and today she told me about this debate. I thought it was interesting, so I joined. Are you insinuating that I am a shill for the film industry?

Re the made up part, I’m sorry you’re too busy to read the whole short story.

I'm afraid I have no idea what you're referring to when you say "made up" part. I read the OP, though.

It has just nominated for 5 Oscars. Or some such number. That's for a controversial movie that few have seen, and lends credence to the idea that there has been manipulation of attendance numbers to further an agenda.

Attendence numbers have nothing to do with Oscar nominations, and it's not uncommon for the Academy to nominate and praise movies that mainstream folks don't like. I personally didn't like American Beauty. I thought it made light of a lot of controversial topics, and I feel like the Academy gave it the Best Picture award in part because they wanted to push the proverbial envelope.

Welcome to FR. Watch out for the ZOT.

Thanks. I don't know what the ZOT is, though.

'Made up part"

In the original post I addressed the distinct possibility that the caller just made up the whole story.

He may have been someone who had an agenda to discredit Brokeback.

Most of the questions you've raised have been covered upthread.

I can't speak for the others on these threads, but if you browse FR you'll find a common theme in regard to Hollywood. We don't trust them to have the good of the country in mind as they produce and promote their movies. There is evidence available (I don't have a link handy, but it's there) that they don't even have the profit motive in mind as they produce movies.

What's left? Why produce movies then? Most of us here would say it's because they want to promote some social agenda. Brokeback would be circumstantial evidence of that. So would The China Syndrome, which set back nuclear energy 30+ years in this country. There are hundreds of other examples, including the President and Vice-Presidents trip to Hollywood immediately following 9-11 to ask for their help in making movies supporting the USA's effort in WWIV. The only resulting movies are those which arguably support our enemies.

We've accepted the strength of Hollywood to influence our country, and are working to make a change, even if it takes 30 years, as it has with SCOTUS. Part of that effort is to alert common people, like most of us here at FR, to questionable activity. This thread was a contribution to that effort.
