Just curious to know how many of you received the Tokyo Mater short to add to Bolt. Does anyone know if there has been any TV advertising about the short?

Our print of Bolt drops to just two shows a day starting tomorrow and adding the short would mean removing virtually all the trailers. So I'm looking for feedback.

With adding this short, I would extend your show times to keep your trailer length the same.

Just one of those mandatory things from the "House of Mouse."

We were warned when we got our bookings Monday that the running time of Bolt would be extended by 7 minutes because of the short, and if necessary, adjust our showtimes accordingly.

We had originally planned to drop Bolt this week and then Disney came back and asked us to hold a couple matinee shows. I didn't even know about the short until it showed up on Tuesday - after showtimes had already been sent off to newspapers and what not.

Justin, yup, I just saw a TV ad for the short tonight. Guess they want to give BOLT longer legs.

Newspaper display ads include a definite mention of the short.

We added it to our 35mm Print of Bolt last night. I don't think it is going to do much to increase our attendance though, I think Madagascar outdid Bolt like 2:1 or 3:1 even in Bolt's opening week.

I am interested to watch it though, Pixar's shorts are usually very entertaining.

This short is worth all of the other PIXAR shorts that they have in their library - excellent to watch again.

..would love to see this one in 3D though....but, guess time will tell when I can...

I found the short by accident. One of the theater staff had opened the FedX envelope, realized it wasn't something for the front office and then stuck it on top of a pile of "stuff" that was just sitting around.
I found it late last night while leaving the theater, and I'm off until Tuesday-- so it will probably sit there till then, since I'm the only one who usually deals with this sort of thing.

Or they might come and pull your print for "contract violation" since you aren't playing everything you're supposed to play. I'd get that short added post-haste.
