Please read our Terns and Conditions prior to booking. Available @ www.ruralcinema.com.au Why – Is this a fundraiser, a community event or just a night out? Where – Choose a location that is suited to your purpose. If you want to use the local park, check that street lighting and traffic noise is not going to be an issue on the night. Public open space will require council approval. Most councils will require an event management plan and 6 weeks notices. Schools may require approval from the Principal. Check that your venue has adequate power for your requirements and Reticulation inactive on the night. Make sure that venue lighting can be turned off and on as required on the night. Plus, there is adequate parking. When – Pick a date and check that your chosen venue is available and that you are not clashing with other events. Check that Rural Cinema is available for your screening date. How Funding - Set a budget. Allow funds for advertising your event, insurance, council approvals, toilets ETC. Apply for a grant, Grantslink (www.grantslink.gov.au/About.aspx ) or Lottowest (www.lotterywest.wa.gov.au/grants ) Seek out sponsors within the community, offer on screen advertising and logo on all advertising materials. Ticket pricing - don’t undervalue your event but on the same hand a full house is great, so don’t overprice your tickets either. Rural cinema can help you with pricing and can provide you with tickets for your night. (NOTE - Tickets may be a requirement with some distributors) Pre-sell tickets – people are less likely to change their mind about coming on the night if they are already committed. Movie selection - Once a cinema date is confirmed Rural Cinema will forward a list of movie titles. This list can be large, so consider what sort of movie you’d like to screen, a themed event, a nostalgic older movie or a new release ( Note – Each film distributor has their own set of rules for when and how movies can be screened – ALL MOVIES REQUIRE SCREENING PERMISSION.) A suggestion is to pick your target market age group select a movie that will appeal to this age group either by asking a few friends in that age group or put it to your committee, do not ask for to many opinions or the list will get to long. Put forward your top three preferences in preference order. Sometimes especially relating to new release movies your first choice is not always available to you. Rural Cinema Make your own tickets available from our web site www.ruralcinema.com.au/downloads.php Power - Rural cinema can provide it’s own power at an additional cost , so power is not always a consideration, however toilet facilities and power for other stall holders etc needs to be considered. Use the form below to plan your event. Put the name of who is responsible for each component of your event in the right hand column. Planning your movie night Sound - Rural Cinema will provide all equipment required for sound, Including Microphones for announcements and back ground music prior to the screening. If you have a special requirement please let us know. Name of Event Screening Date Rural Cinema availability Event location Wet weather contingency - The thing about outdoor cinema is the weather is not always guaranteed. However if an alternate venue is already sourced and advertising indicates this then a change of venue is just as successful. Advertising - You can’t sell a secret so be loud about your event – the more the merrier. posters, flyers and community notice boards are a good launch pad but consider anywhere that lets people know of your event. There are some restrictions on how you can advertise your movie. Certain movie titles require advertising permission from the distributor. Not for profit groups have a lot of advertising/promotion opportunities for little and no cost. A press release to the local paper and newsletters. What’s on columns in the newspaper. Local schools, sporting groups and community groups all have a notice board of some description. Rural cinema can provide you with movie posters and flyers at an additional cost. Clash with other events Permission Layout Lighting Planning Power Reticulation Security Wet Weather Funding Grants Sponsors Advertising Tickets Food sales Event Movie Selection Rural Cinema Quote Other costs Advertising Food for thought 1. Most People choose new releases, however theme nights can work out well EG Rocky Horror, Neverending Story, ET, ECT. 2. If you wish to have an intermission keep it short 10 - 15 mins unless you have an activity planned (people get bored and the kids run a-muck) 3. Don't become a baby-sitting service; Make sure children are accompanied by adults, as adults are paying customers! Large groups of children are difficult to handle and may affect your insurance. 5. Budget to advertise the event well. This is very important to get the numbers on the night 6. Keep the entry fee reasonable and not too cheap EG $8 - $15 for everybody. 7. Don't plan anything for after the feature presentation (unless a theme night). In my experience the hall or oval will be empty before the credits have finished. 8. Drum up funds by offering on screen advertising. 9. Pre-sell as many tickets as you can. 10. Make sure there are plenty of bins for rubbish.
