Booking Circuits

Documents on Theatrical Utilities Service, based in Buffalo, NY. Hess responds to a request for information about an article published in Exhibitors Daily Review indicating that distributors were combining to refuse to deal with this buying circuit. Claims there is no concerted action and all MPPDA companies have contracted with it. It is a circuit involving 46 theatres, paid by a percentage of the savings on rentals by comparison to previous year, on the same basis as the Casanave circuit. Hesss view was that the distributors could legally collectively refuse to do business with any person seeking to buy collectively for independently owned units.
