Paramount’s plan to introduce a $50 ticket that would give the buyer the opportunity to watch a movie in a theater two days before it opens for general release has proved to be a qualified success, reports Daily Variety, citing unidentified sources presumably connected with last month’s special screenings in five cities. The $50 ticket also gives moviegoers the opportunity to download an HD digital copy of the movie when it becomes available, a poster, a pair of custom-made RealD 3D glasses, and a small popcorn. The trade publication said that four of the five theaters dedicated to the preview screenings were sold out, while the fifth was 80-percent filled.
