What Is An Independent?

Any independent exhibitor may join the ICA. An “independent exhibitor” is basically what you would expect, as more specifically defined for legal reasons as follows:

  • A company engaged in the operation of at least one cinema or drive-in for the exhibition of motion pictures for public entertainment.
  • Not publicly traded, owned by a studio, a film distributor or other major content supplier.
  • Operating no more than 500 screens.
  • Not owned in whole or in part by a national or regional cinema circuit having a theatrical revenue share of more than 2 percent.
