Which Film Gets Credit for Sneak Previews?

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.
