The Relationship with INDY has been tremendously helpful in securing the right films for our programme. It is a pleasure to pick up the phone to and know that you are speaking with an expert in running cinemas. Both in terms of booking films and making sure all the technical requirements are in place to ensure performances run smoothly, INDY provide a first class service.
For us it was really important to work with a booker who 'gets us' and is willing to listen to our needs. We have had outstanding service as we have made the transition to digital cinema and have already developed a fantastic working relationship. Cinema can be cold, impersonal and unfriendly; we work to avoid that, as does INDY.
INDY took the time to identify our key audiences and programme accordingly, which has seen an increase in our audience figures and more importantly our revenue! They offer a tailor-made service which has delivered sound solutions to a wide range of problems we were encountering from delivery to programming. Without doubt INDY Scotland saves us valuable time and maximises our financial return on film.
There's nothing standard about the standards of INDY that we at Chalmers Filmhouse Arbroath have enjoyed these past years.
