Default Swedish cinema meetup!

Hi everyone!

Ever since Avatar SE was announced NOT to show in Sweden, I have been looking for alternate means of watching the movie on the big screen - and I now might have found a solution.

As some of you might know, SF rents out cinema locales for conferences, meetings etc - and if we are lucky, they might very well be able to rent it out for us swedes in here to watch Avatar as well!

I sent SF this email just recently:

Quote:
Hej!

Jag representerar en grupp på 10-20 personer med ett brinnande intresse för James Cameron's Avatar. Då denna film sedan länge har slutat visats på SF's biografer, och inte heller kommer att visas igen, har vi under en tid diskuterat alternativa sätt att uppleva filmen på ett så bra sätt som möjligt. Det absolut bästa vore förstås att återigen se filmen i en av SF's lokaler, och därför har vi nu intresserat oss för SF Bio Konferens & Event.

Detta medför förstås en del frågor, och den mest uppenbara är - vilka möjligheter finns det att hyra en biosalong under en halvdag för att se på ovan nämnda film? Är det alls möjligt, eller förhindras detta av licensrättigheter? (eftersom filmen nu släppts på både DVD och blu-ray, förefaller dock detta för mig inte särskilt troligt)

Vilka metoder finns tillgängliga - biografutrustning, eller projektor/dvd alt. blu-ray?

Svar på dessa frågor skulle uppskattas.


Vänliga hälsningar,

Ivar Hill

If it does turn out to work, the meetup will be held in Bergakungen, Gothenburg, and the cost of renting the locale (5100 kr exkl. moms) WILL be split up between us. If we can make 10-20 people (I will post this at all other Avatar communities too), it will be fully reasonable.

Time and date is not decided - after all, they might very well decline offering us the locale at all.

So, if anyone's interested, just drop a post in this thread. Of course non-swedes are welcome as well, provided they can make it there.

I'd totally go to Sweden to see Avatar with you guys! Only my parents would think I'm insane and the costs associated with it as well.

If I were a bit older, and had the money, I'd be there.

I am absolutely interested!

I would have updated the other thread, but a cloose family member recently passed away, so it's been to much for me recently. Glad to see that there is still interest though!

I am still waiting for a reply from the Gothenburg division - but they said I will receive one shortly, so I'll keep waiting.

Hello everyone! (speaking in english since anyone is invited to join, not only swedes )

I bring updates. I discussed it over with SF, and it's fully doable. However, it will be expensive. 8800kr (1301.29 USD) - excluding moms. Totally it'll be about 11000kr, I assume.

This is by no means something that prevents us from doing it, but it means that we will have to FILL this cinema locale if we are going to bring the prices for each person down to a respectable level - OR have a few people who are ready to pay some more. I'm saddened to say that I myself have a quite limited budget - so I won't be able to put down more than a tenth of the cost as the most.

So, feel free to spread the word to people you know, whom you know to like the movie. If anyone is willing to "donate" some more money for this cause, let me know.

For the people at NaviForums and LearnNavi - this conversation will be held at one place now, since it makes it much easier to decide things. In other words, go here:
Swedish cinema meetup!

To keep discussing this.

Finally, here is the latest reply I recieved from SF:
Quote:
Att ordna en sluten visning och att köra Avatar på duken i en salong är absolut möjligt.

Vi har finfina möjligheter att köra filmen digitalt och få bra & stor bild.

Men, för att komma undan någorlunda kostnadseffektivt bör denna visning ske dagtid (helst förmiddag) så att vi inte blockar/tvingas ställa in ordinarie repertoar. Är det din tanke?



Rättigheter och annat ordnar jag..



Kostnader kommer att se ut ungefär så här (reservation för ev. ändringar)

Rättigheter/film ca 1500.-

Lokalhyra salong 5 (98platser) 5100.-

DVD, ljudanläggning 1000.-

Personal ca 1200.-



Tot ca 8800.- ex moms
That'd be all. Let's make this happen!

I'm willing to pay a bit more, but I'm not able to pay a lot either... I'll have to get a flight there too, remember
