Outdoor Movies & Film Licensing
Screening copyrighted movies at a Gamez on Wheelz Backyard Movie event usually requires a public performance license. If you are hosting your own family outdoor movie night, you won’t need one. Obtaining a public performance license is a simple process. The cost can range from $250-$600 depending on the studio, title and event date. Licensing costs can fluctuate weekly. Gamez on Wheelz cannot purchase the license for you, but we can help make it easy for you to obtain it. Here’s what you do:
- Select your movie title for your event. For a list of the current top movies go to: http://parks.swank.com/topMovies.html or find the top 50 ALL-TIME family favorite list by going to: http://parks.swank.com/topClassicMovies.html
- Is it available on DVD yet? Usually if it is available on DVD for Home use it will be available for outdoor public use but each studio has its own restrictions. Be sure to check with your Swank or Criterion rep or check out http://parks.swank.com/newReleases.asp for all new releases.
- Contact us to schedule our outdoor cinema services for your specific date and movie title
- Talk with us about how to obtain your public performance license or go direct to www.swank.com or http://www.criterionpicusa.com. These are the only two companies that offer public license and they both don’t carry the same movies.
- Typically these companies will simply bill your credit card for the license. They’ll notify you of any restrictions and they’ll send you a printed license for screening the title at one address on a specific date. Either they’ll supply you with a DVD or you bring your own.
Restrictions from Studios
Generally, if it’s available on DVD it can be presented. Some filmmakers, such as Disney and its subsidiaries, have partially restricted use of their movie titles in outdoor settings. Please contact us to learn more. Respecting copyrighted movies is fundamental for legitimately hosting outdoor cinema events. By respecting the copyright licensing laws, Gamez on Wheelz and its customers help support outdoor movie cinema entertainment for years to come.
