Newspaper ads that list all theatres in the area showing that movie are called co-op ads. Theatres have to pay to be placed in these ads. We had an average of $9,000 a week to be placed an ad for Friday-Sunday.
This is why many owners be placed in the time clock which is free in most papers.

An agreement is made with all studios for first run and second run along with the contracts you get when you first open. I operate several theaters one is a twin and we have “Racing Stripes”. Warner states that when we got the picture when hade to keep it four weeks. We got the movie January 14th on the National
Release date. We could not split the movie for the first three weeks. This Friday it will show with a split with “National Treasure” which we are bringing back for one showing nightly. ”Racing Stripes “ will still show twice on weekdays and three times this weekend.

Warren as far as movies with Spanish subtitles showing here and if they would continue to show
in Jackson Heights is really up in the air.

I believe there is a big enough market for both
theater to show Spanish subtitle features.

However is there enough prints to go around is another question when the “big hits” are released.

The trouble with making The Plaza Theatre a quad is 2 of the theaters would have only seated 65 in one theatre and 90 seats in the other.

Plaza Theatre 2 will join Plaza Theatre 1 this summer.
Hopefully Plaza Theatre 2 will open in time for
the summer movie kickoff in May.

About midway through the 1985 film “Death Wish 3” a delivery truck drives by the Nova Cinemas. The film must have been shot sometime in 1984 most likely summer; anyway “Beverly Hills Cop” is one of the movies advertised on the marquee. The Nova at this time must have been a twin because only two movies were on the marquee.
