Fancy £100 to watch Call Me By Your Name again on the big screen? How about free tickets to bring Andrea Arnold’s American Honey back to your local cinema?
ourscreen, the crowdsourced cinema platform, has introduced a new offer for budding cinema-goers, giving film fans the opportunity to receive £100 when they host any successful film screening at their local cinema, plus their own cinema ticket totally free.
Since 2014, ourscreen’s crowdsourced model has allowed members of the public to arrange film screenings at their local cinema. But for the first time, hosts who create screenings will be rewarded with £100 if their screening succeeds in selling the minimum number of tickets required in order to go ahead.
The new incentive is aimed to encourage passionate film fans to host regular screenings, and provide an opportunity for film clubs to develop across the UK. Two of ourscreen’s most successful hosts have grown into popular film clubs in Manchester and Barnstaple, both hosting sell-out screenings of classic films each month.
David Kapur, co-CEO of ourscreen said, “In Manchester and Barnstaple we’ve been able to see how one person showing their favourite film can snowball into a fantastic film club that brings people back to the cinema over and over again. Our offer aims to reward those whose effort makes these screenings happen and have committed to something that brings people together, at a time when we spend too much time alone. It might even lead to some new friendships too.”
ourscreen has a rotating choice of over 600 films, including recent Award winners such as Moonlight, La La Land, and a huge selection of F-Rated titles, films directed or written by women, including 2015’s Carol and Penny Marshall’s classic Big. The site has access to over 150 cinemas, including ODEON and Vue multiplexes.
Initially, the offer applies to all screenings created before April 30th 2019. Hosts can create a screening here.
Launched in 2014, ourscreen is the UK’s foremost crowdsourced cinema platform, revolutionising our relationship with the cinema. ourscreen allows film fans to buy cinema tickets online or crowdsource their own screenings at more than 150 cinemas across the UK. If enough people book tickets the screening goes ahead.
ourscreen offers access to over 600 films, from cult classics The Big Lebowski and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, to recent releases such as Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs. The platform has helped launch a number of films in cinemas, including the Arsenal documentary 89, James Lavelle documentary The Man from Mo’Wax and brought Spice World back to cinemas for it’s 20th anniversary.
