How it works for Independent Commercial Cinemas

Every two months YourScreen will announce a new season of five to eight films, any of which you’ll be able to select for inclusion in your online programme. All will be great films deserving of an audience, but some will have been included because of their strong appeal to independent (‘arthouse’) cinema audiences. We will announce each season at least a month before it starts to give you time to make your programming choices – you can choose as few or as many of the films as you wish. The films will be available for at least a month – sometimes for the entire 2-month season – and can be watched by your audience at any point during the availability period.

The Procedure

  1. Once we’ve received your expression of interest we’ll send details of each new YourScreen season well in advance of its launch date.
  2. To help you choose, we’ll provide secure online screeners, or you can register for one of our Virtual Preview Days during which forthcoming titles can be viewed at no cost on our streaming platform.
  3. When you have selected films we’ll send a promotion pack containing a trailer link, hi-res stills, production notes, press reviews and a synopsis for each film.
  4. Then we’ll agree on the ticket price for your audience. This will be based on the premium admission charge at your physical screenings – your viewers will watch on a TVOD basis.
  5. We will send you a unique promo code to use in your programme marketing which will enable your viewers to access films at the agreed discounted ticket price.
    6 We track all views originating from your cinema, so can let you know how many have watched each film.
  6. At the close of each film’s run we will send you a report and ask you to invoice for your percentage of the revenue.

Your Audiences can

  • Watch at the agreed ticket price.
  • Watch at any time during a film’s run.
  • Share your promo code with family and friends, thus generating more income for you.
  • Download a filmnote for each film.
  • Watch Q+A sessions with crew and / or cast members at no cost, either ‘live’ on our platform (when they’ll be able to participate by submitting questions) or later in recorded form from our archive.
  • Browse all the other titles on our streaming platform and watch any of them at the standard admission price. It’s like having access to an ever-changing ongoing film festival!
