Gathr ///

Your film. Your friends. Your theater.

Gathr is a brand-new service that allows you to bring the movies you want to a venue near you. It’s what we like to call TOD.

about

45,000 films are going to be made, worldwide, this year. Yeah, we realize not all of them — okay, most of them, aren’t going to be so great — but, that still leaves a ton of solid movies that won’t have a prayer of being shown in a theatre near you. Studios, after all, only plan to release about 120 of them.

So, if you are a film fan who wants to see the latest genre fare with a like-minded crowd of rabid film geeks, or if you are a foreign expat who wants to get together with family and friends to see something that was made back home, your chances have been pretty slim. Until now.

Gathr democratizes theatrical distribution by allowing you, the movie-goer, to ‘pull’ movies to local theatres, instead of being stuck with what few options are currently playing.

Bottom Line:

In addition to securing theatrical screenings for films whose “captains” can presell a set number of tickets (“tip” the event), Gathr further offers a “campus screening” option which is effectively a fixed-price screening fee for educational institutions.

Revenue Split:

Varies (It’s a simple formula with transparent accounting and reporting. Fixed delivery costs come off the top, then we pay theaters a percentage of the gross — with an MG that’s against that gross. What is left over we split with our content owners. Everybody is playing the upside. And we are building in a mechanism to not even tip unless everyone is in the black.)
