I have heard about loan officers having movie events for the database over the years and always thought it was a great idea, just not something I wanted to organize. Luckily for me, I work with a few amazing loan officers and three of us decided to work on this project together. It helps to split the costs, the tasks and work with a team.
We have a large theater reserved for opening weekend. We each ended up with 181 tickets and it has been a blast calling up my Realtor partners to see if they want a few tickets. Saturday at 12:30 is our show time and now that discovered the entire weekend is sold out, I have suddenly become very popular. I always wanted to be popular - who knew this is all it took.
The Theater is providing us with a table to have set up with our stuff and a microphone to say a few words before the movie starts. We have also purchased small lights sabers from the dollar store to give out as people are leaving. We looked into having Chewbacca be there for pictures but can't find a costume to rent locally. Brilliant idea if we could have pulled it off.
Look at the movies coming out over the next few months and see if there is one that would make a good Movie Event for your business.
