"And the sad news is that this all happened after we had sold 1,000 tickets to our Boise Classic Movies event," said Werner.
Werner said he pleaded with the distributor to show White Christmas at The Egyptian for free, with attendees donating a can of food for the needy. But Fathom Events was having none of it. Even so, Werner is taking the high road.
"We're still encouraging people to go enjoy White Christmas at the Fathom Events [screening]," he said.
In the meantime, Werner is faced with refunds to 1,000 would-be attendees of his event at The Egyptian.
"I'm actually offering a 110 percent credit so that people can use that toward a future screening," he said.
As for other holiday films, Boise Classic Movies still has plenty to choose from in the coming week, beginning with A Muppet Christmas Carol on Saturday, Dec. 8; followed by A Christmas Story on Thursday, Dec. 13, and Friday, Dec. 14; and It's a Wonderful Life on Wednesday, Dec. 19.
