Here Are All the Cities and Theaters That 'Miles Ahead' Is Set to Open in Over the Next Month

I read some tweets today from frustrated folks who want to see Don Cheadle’s “Miles Ahead” (which opened on 4 screens over the weekend) but cannot just yet because it hasn’t premiered in their respective cities. And some of those people said that they’d bootleg it if they had to.

No, please, don’t bootleg it.

Yes, it’s frustrating that a film you really want to see isn’t yet playing at a theater you have access to, but you’ll have to be patient and wait for it to get to you. I know we’re living in a time when we’re all only a matter of a few clicks away from just about anything we want, whenever we want it – including movies – but it’s not always that simple. “Miles Ahead” is not “Batman v Superman” which opened on 4200 screens nationwide, with a marketing budget that’s reportedly in the $150 million range (on top of its roughly $250 million production budget, for a total of at least $400 million). “Miles Ahead’s” entire budget (the cost to make the film, market and release it) is a tiny, tiny, tiny fraction of that. So it simply can’t be expected to open nationwide simultaneously (whether it’s 1,000 screens or 4,000).

Films of its ilk are typically released with this strategy: an initial very limited opening (usually in LA and NYC), followed by a gradual expansion over several months. You have to understand how the exhibition process works, especially in terms of how theaters book films, as well as their relationships with studios/distribution companies, how important money (marketing power, box office potential) is in all of this, and more. I’ll maybe write up a post in the future breaking this down further, including all the different strategies that can be employed in the process of distributing a film.

But for now, just don’t bootleg the film. It’s actually *small* films like this that could really use your financial support. As you’ve probably heard before, how well a film does during the early days of its release often determines how much more aggressive the distributor and theaters will be in continuing to book it. This is particular true for indies like “Miles Ahead.”

So if you’re waiting to see “Miles Ahead,” I lifted the below playdates from the film’s website which lists all the upcoming cities and theaters it’s scheduled to open in through the end of this month. Take a look below; hopefully you’ll find a theater near you. Do keep in mind that this is just for through the end of April. There might be playdates eyed for months after April which will be announced later. Although that might depend on how well the film does at the below locations, and collectively, through the next 4 weeks or so.
