Scrabble Ventures Dives in to Save the Drive Ins: “We’re Going to Make Them an Offer They Won’t Refuse“ - to the Remaining Drive Ins in America Yet to Transition to Digital

Scrabble Ventures (SV) is a leasing program that helps the independent cinemas transition to digital at the lowest entry cost. The plan does not require a financial pre-qualification and is available to all screens in North America who are still in the 35 mm world.
 
The company announced today that it has created a remarkably attractive financial proposal for the remaining unconverted Drive In’s in the country. The same will be revealed in a one-day sponsored event to be held at a Philadelphia Hotel in the first week of June. Details of the same will be available on the Scrabble Ventures website, www.scrabbleventures.com within a few days. The company will pay for the hotel stay of the pre-registered drive in exhibitors.  They will also be provided with the boiler plate of the contracts so all their questions or concerns on the documentation can be addressed prior to the event.
 
Ranjit Thakur, CEO of Scrabble Ventures said, “ We’re going to give them an offer, they won’t refuse. We have foregone every penny of potential profit in the newly structured deal to make it an easy decision for every drive in that is struggling to transition to digital.  Drive In’s are America’s heritage & we are happy to be part of the value chain “
 
The last date of installation under the Scrabble plan is June 30th & the event is slated to meet this deadline. Post this date; there would be no real funding opportunities available to any other exhibitors in the country. The plan uses Christie equipment, that can be selected per each individual’s screen size, provides a five year comprehensive warranty on all parts (excluding lamp & filters)  & provides hosts of other value points which makes it different from any other plan ever offered in the country.
 
Not taking away credit from any other manufacturer, Scrabble bet on Christie purely because of its legacy in the cinema business. They have been supporting cinemas across the world for over fifty years with quality products. Equipment’s do fail from time to time.  They are extremely conscious of the fact that an exhibitor looses money when the equipment is down & hence their spare parts support across the length & breath of the country and immediate response time to failures, only validate their 100% uptime commitment to all exhibitors.
 
Details to follow on the Scrabble website. Please stay tuned. Join us in saving the Drive In’s
