Depending on agreements with the distributor, you may need to calculate film hire separately for each ticket class.
Example: Matinee tickets to Swan Lake are $9, and regular tickets are $12. The distributor agrees to a lower 35% split for matinee, but wants a 65% split for regular tickets. The film programmer creates a Matinee ticket class and a Regular ticket class, and sets the distribution terms to calculate film hire separately for each class.
- Open or create the required Ticket Class.
- In the Analysis Code field, enter the desired unique value.
- Repeat steps 1-2 as required.
- Check that the relevant Ticket Types have been associated with the desired Ticket Class.
- Open or create the required Distribution Term.
- Set the Calculation Method to Minimum Average Net Ticket Price per Capita.
- Select Calculate by Ticket Class Analysis Code.
Warning! When this calculation method is selected, the net value of tickets is used, and not the gross value. Do not use this calculation method unless you are sure your film hire is based on net values.
- Enter the desired % split for each week.
- Enter the value for Minimum Price (Net) for each week.
Note: The minimum ticket price value must be the same across all Ticket Classes.
