    This past weekend when I went to see "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back", I noticed that the theater made time for it in an auditorium that would have been showing "The Others". The marquee did not have a 7ish time due to the sneak.
    Now, I know Miramax distributes both films and the money eventually goes back to them as a company, but which film actually gets credit for the money made from the sneak preview???
    I don't recall reading in the box office reports that the amount earned over a specific weekend included sneak previews that had taken place a weekend beforehand; nor have I heard that it goes towards the film that was already playing. The theater maybe?!?!?
    Thanks.

    Funny you should ask. I was listening to Kevin Smith this morning on a local radio show and he said the money from the sneak preview went to The Others.

    Sneak Previews are considered free bonus screenings. The money you paid goes to the regular feature co-playing with the sneak.
