Last night we went to How She Move at 9:30…surprisingly, we were the only four in the theatre. (can you believe it?) Afterwards, we got to thinkin’…would they show the movie if no one showed up?
Through my ‘many’ connections, I discovered that it depends on the projectionist. They usually show the previews and first fifteen minutes to make sure no one shows up…then the projectionist decides to turn it off, or not.
To summarize: If a movie is scheduled to play and no one shows up, it may still go…or not.
