What This License Does NOT Cover:
An organization providing movie nights for churches and other organizations may purchase the Standard license for each site/venue, but can NOT use this license to go from church to church/location to location.
No organization may require an admission charge. However, because of seating capacity, the event may need to be a ticketed event. The ticket may show a suggested donation. The event may be used as a fundraiser; donations may be accepted and concessions, goods, and resources may be sold with no share of the revenue required by the producer.
