Frequently Asked Questions
What is Gathr?
Gathr allows you to bring films like Under The Turban to a venue near you. It’s called Theatrical On Demand. The goal is to unite as many people with Under The Turban as possible in a theater setting that allows viewers to tune out distractions and immerse themselves in this story.
How does Gathr screening happen?
Requested Gathr screenings can only happen if a minimum number of people reserve tickets before a screening request expires. Every screening page shows you the number of current reservations, the number of additional reservations needed to tip the screening, as well as how much time remains before that screening request expires. When enough people reserve tickets to a screening before time expires, the screening takes place. If the minimum number of reservations is not met, the screening does not take place and nobody is charged.
How do I reserve or purchase a ticket to a movie?
Enter your location/zip code on the map widget at the "organize a screening" page. If there's a screening, it shows up as a dot on the map. Click the dot!

What's the difference?
If the minimum number of tickets have not yet been reserved, the dot is dark green and you will be prompted to reserve a ticket by pre-authorizing your credit card.
When will my credit card be charged?
Your credit card will only be charged once the screening has met the minimum number of reservations. If the screening has reached its minimum number of attendees, the dot appears bright green and your ticket purchase will be processed immediately. If the minimum number of attendees is not met in the timeframe given, the screening does not take place and nobody is charged.
