Releasing Los Angeles — Paramount last week an¬ nounced the details of its experimental plan for subsequent run exhibition in the area following the expanded first-run ex¬ hibition in seven districts. A total of 21 runs will be offered in competitive negotiations on three pic¬ tures. The first subsequent runs will be served on an availability of 28 days after the first-run opening date Para¬ mount has designated. Each of the first runs on three pictures will play a mini¬ mum of two weeks. On other pictures, which may be offered on this plan, the availability will be determined by the minimum length of the first run. In negotiating these runs, the area has been divided into eight districts. These districts, and the number of runs to be offered in each, are: Areas 1 and 2 combined, constituting urban Los Angeles and Hollywood, and also including Belvedere Gardens, Monte¬ bello, Eagle Rock, Highland Park, and Whittier, eight runs; area 3, including Beverly Hills, Westwood, Santa Monica, Ocean Park, Venice, Culver City, and Pacific Palisades, three runs; area 4, in¬ cluding Inglewood, Westchester Village, the area South of Torrance, El Segundo, Hawthorne, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, and Redondo, three runs; area 5, including Huntington Park, Maywood, Bell, Southgate, Lynwood, Compton, and the Florence Avenue area, one run; area 6, including Pasadena, South Pasadena, Alhambra, and all of the theatres in the San Gabriel Valley, two runs; area 7, including Glendale, one run, and area 8, including Burbank and all the theatres in the San Fernando Valley area west to, and including, Canoga Park, three runs. Availability dates for the commence¬ ment of the 28-day runs will be as fol¬ lows: “The Greatest Show On Earth”, Aug. 6, and “Jumping Jacks”, Aug. 20. These runs will have 14 days to play and clear prior to commencement of the next runs in each area, which will be licensed on an availability of 42 days after the first-run opening date availability designated by Paramount. All subsequent run availabilities, being keyed off first-run opening instead of closing as in the past, will be automati¬ cally determined by first-run bows. TV Payments Due Soon Hollywood — Monogram announced last week that first payments to actors as added fees for television sale of theatrical sales made by the company after Aug. 1, 1948, will be made in several weeks.
