It is difficult to decide what to charge for tickets to the show. I want everyone who wants to see it to be able to come. I know how bad the economy is, so I want to keep the price down. I was going to charge $10 in advance and $15 at the door. Every film I have seen at the Columbus I have spent $20 on the ticket because it was a premier. Happy Endings? is going to be a premier, but I am always afraid to ask for too much money. I know the film is great, and it is a hot topic, but I just want to get the word out.
My mom wants me to charge $20 and my brother wants me to charge $25. I decided on $15 in advance and $20 at the door. There are 4 shows, so I can give a portion (I am thinking 13% of ticket sales) of each show to local charities or social work groups. I want to give to RI Food Bank because every year while I was doing the film “Heather” gave $200 worth of turkeys at Thanksgiving. The other group is Day One, because they offered the women in the spas translation services. I have to contact the groups and figure out the two other groups that I can give to. It is good that I have a little time, but time is flying by quickly
