What is Gathr ®?
Through grassroots marketing and outreach we generate public and private screening (one-night) event requests for our films and then accommodate and book those requests in local theaters and non-theatrical venues without the organizer spending any money.
How do Gathr® screenings happen?
Gathr® screenings can only happen if a minimum number of people reserve tickets before a screening request expires.
On every screening page you’ll find an update that shows you the number of current reservations, the number of additional reservations needed to “tip” the screening, as well as how much time remains before that screening request expires. When enough people reserve tickets to a screening before time expires, the screening takes place. If the minimum number of reservations is not met, the screening does not take place and nobody is charged.
How do I find a screening?
It’s easy, enter your zipcode into the widget on this page. If there are any screenings already in process in your area, a list will be generated. IF there are none schedule you can click on NOTIFY ME to be told when a screening is organized in your area or, you can request a NEW SCREENING and become a Movie Captain!
How do I reserve/purchase a ticket to a movie?
Scroll over the movie you want to see and click VIEW SCREENING DETAILS, then click either RESERVE YOUR SEAT NOW or BUY YOUR TICKET.
If there is no screening, how do I request or set up one in my community?
It’s easy. In the Gathr widget, click on REQUEST A NEW SCREENING for your movie. Then, just let us know the time, date, and location you want, and we’ll get started right away arranging your screening. You’ll become one of our highly valued Movie Captains (and instructions on “how to” will be emailed to you along with a Movie Captain Toolkit and some assets to market the film)
Gathr will take care of the venue and the technical aspects related to the film including the ticketing functions, etc.
To note: based on the process to successfully book and “tip” these events (details below) the screenings will begin the week starting October 17th. Gathr events usually occur on Monday – Thursday at approximately 7:30pm.
What is the difference between reserving a ticket and purchasing a ticket?
When a movie does not have a GreenLight, your option is to reserve a ticket by pre-authorizing your credit card. When a movie has a GreenLight, your ticket purchase will be processed immediately. An email will be sent to you containing a link to download and print your ticket.
What does Green Light mean?
A Green Light means the screening is definitely going to happen.
When will my credit card be charged?
Your credit card will only be charged once your screening has met the minimum number of reservations and has a GreenLight.
Who can request a Gathr® screening?
Anyone can Gathr® a movie screening. Whether you’re an individual, a social club, or a theater, you can request a screening. It’s fun, simple, and only takes a few minutes.
What can I do to make my screening happen?
Tell your friends, family, and anyone else you think would be interested in seeing the film. Great ways to do this are emailing the screening page and sharing on Facebook and Twitter. The more ways you spread the word about your movie event, the more likely it will happen.
What is the refund policy?
You may cancel a reservation before a screening has been given the Green Light. To do so, please make a request with our Customer Support team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Because of our commitment to the venue, once a screening has been given the Green Light, we are unable to cancel or exchange your ticket.
All Gathr tickets purchased on the Gathr Site are non-refundable. All ticket purchases are subject to Gathr’s service fees and charges, which are also non-refundable. You will be responsible for paying all applicable taxes in connection with your purchase of any tickets, if such taxes are not included in the price.
We accept payment exclusively through the Gathr website.
You agree to provide Gathr with accurate, complete, and current information such as your full name, address and credit card and/or billing information. If you do not receive an order confirmation from Gathr upon purchase of tickets for a confirmed Gathr Screening, you must contact our Customer Support team to confirm the transaction was approved and/or or your ticket purchase is confirmed.
Your ticket(s) reservation is considered a contract. Should your credit card expire between the time of the reservation and the time your card is attempted to be charged, Gathr may pursue collection of payment by requesting a new transaction. You will be required to re-submit payment.
