Event Cinema is a growing piece of the midweek movieplex puzzle as more and more exhibitors turn to this type of one-night-only programming. Box Office Insider brings you an updated release schedule of upcoming Alternative Content events.

Doctor Who

Event Cinema is a growing piece of the midweek movieplex puzzle as more and more exhibitors turn to this type of one-night-only programming.  Last week's "The Last Night of Monty Python" scored $1.2 million in the UK, making it that country's fourth highest Event Cinema production, and played well on this side of the pond as well.  The next big event to watch for is August 25th's "Doctor Who" season premiere event.  Last year's "Doctor Who: Day of the Doctor" special amassed an almost inconceivable $4.8 million from 660 North American theatres on a Monday night in November.  Not included on this list but noteworthy are in-theatre showings every Saturday of a specially selected Barclay's Premiership League football (soccer) match.  The games will begin August 16th and run into the spring.
