The Old Man & the Gun (2018), David Lowery - IMDB: 5 Oct 2018 U.S. release

Always liked Robert Redford and Sissy Spacek. Also stars Elisabeth Moss (can't get enough of her films either), Casey Affleck, Keith Carradine, Tom Waits (lots of Jim Jarmusch films, now I am going to see this!). Trailer also seems to show that gas station guy in No Country for Old Men - the guy with the quarter. Based on a true story or whathaveyou. < didn't read that linked indiewire story as it's probably laden with SPOILERS. But, one man's SPOILER is anothers convince me to see it background - so...

Me too, absolutely loved the first one.

I really have to like a movie to actually go and see it in person. Still haven't seen the Avengers movie yet.

Usually IMDB will say limited release, and it doesn't on this one. It may depend on your area - somethings I think that distributors (the people who decide what movies your local theaters get?) decide which movies are limited. It's a guessing game for me - I don't know how the system works, and I can't get answers from anyone (theater managers, Regal or Century corporate, etc.).

Isn't there a member who was in the movie business? Maybe he can chime in?

Most movie goers might already know this but--

Not in movie business but "limited release" can cover a variety of release styles
Some movies are in limited release because they have a very limited appeal but perhaps the director or production company has a deal with certain studio and the studio will actually pay to have movie shown in limited release to satisfy a contract

Many movies are considered not profitable in certain areas because the subject matter just doesn't fit the local demographics...movies made by/with/about ethnic topics usually fit that bill--one theater in my area of DFW TX shows a consistent run of Bollywood/Asian films because there is an ethnic community near enough to make them profitable...

"Leisure Seeker" was a movie like this I think--thought to appeal to only a senior age level
Known stars that have box office draw but the topic and the quality of the movie didn't seem that "sellable" and it found its way into limited release--meaning only a few theaters in any area vs wide release--multiple screens in every movie house within a zip code...

The new "Solo" is certainly in wide release but likely that was part of its doom since word spread quickly...

Sometimes movies will start in limited release--on a few screens in a given area--and word of mouth is so good that customers create a drive for wider release/more theaters...
The first "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" was such a success...
Being from an unknown star/writer (a woman no less) and Tom Hank's wife was producer which didn't mean much initially....
yet it was a huge financial success and nominated for Academy I believe...

Foreign movies often find themselves in very limited release any place but the major cities on W/E coast or maybe certain art houses...
Here in Sarasota, the Sarasota Film Guild owns two theaters--one an historical bldg in downtown Sarasota which plays many independent films balanced with a few more mainstream...it is showing "RBG"--(also playing 1 time a day at my closer AMC 10 screen), "The Rider" and "First Reformed"--neither of which are playing anywhere else...

the second house it owns is newer in a mixed use development and shows an art film Sat/Sun at 11AM that it might not show at the historical site...those can often (because the screening holds maybe 50-70 people) sell out...
