Why isn't the event happening near me? There is a movie theater right down the street!

Q:

Why isn't the event happening near me? There is a movie theater right down the street!

A:

Our theater circuit owners and affiliates select the specific theaters they want to include for each Fathom event.  They must balance the commitments they have with Hollywood studios to show first-run movies with the local market demand for each Fathom event. We would love to have our events in all theaters, but this isn't always possible.

Also, not every movie theater has the receiver technology required to show all of our events. Some theaters can only show pre-recorded events, while others can show live HD events and pre-recorded events.
