“The Irishman”: So film fans suffer from the Netflix movie-armed
Because “The Irishman” is running in only a few cinemas and only for a very limited time, already some people with the great demand are trying to make money in the US. In Germany, we are likely to get more to do theater with long journeys.
Netflix makes his films primarily for its streaming customers and probably not a particularly great interest that too many people enjoy “The Irishman” in theaters. For who solves a cinema ticket, perhaps gets no Netflix account to Martin Scorsese’s hotly anticipated film on the streaming platform to look.

In the US, this leads to some absurd scenarios. The renowned Belasco Theater on Broadway, where else Superstars great theater classics play on stage, is currently almost daily instead of Theater Arts, the mafia drama by Martin Scorsese. 15 US dollars the tickets actually cost, demand is high. When we tested the demonstrations the next day only single seats are available.
And it is trying to make money. In Stubhub, active in Germany online ticket exchange, the cards are traded for a price between 59 and 80 dollars, so for about four times and more. In the very first performances there even just under $ 100 for single tickets to have been paid allegedly.

Mini-start for “The Irishman”
“The Irishman” is currently underway in the US, especially in New York and Los Angeles in theaters, because this is necessary to meet the regulations for the Oscars. Gradually a few more cinemas in the rest of the country are to be added. And even in Europe, there is little by demonstrations.
Really big Netflix will not make the film, we initially referred to so that it goes to the streaming service to subscriptions. There can not be even sure to say how successful “The Irishman” at least runs in his few performances. Netflix released in contrast to the classic studios no information on the US box office. Therefore, “The Irishman” simply appears not on the North American box office – as if not to run the film.

Netflix dispensed money
As CNBC points out in a White Paper, Netflix should even do without in this connection to have lots of money. The cinema owners and put end behind the side BoxOfficeAnalyst expert Doug Stone believes that “The Irishman” could import $ 100 million in US cinemas if Netflix would allow for more demonstrations.

John Fithian, head of the Federation of American cinema owners NATO called it told the New York Times even as a “shame” that “The Irishman” is running in only a few cinemas. He points out that Netflix and cinema operators could not agree to show the film greater. Problem here is not just the lack of interest from Netflix, but also that the cinema operators would like to show the film a few weeks before it can then be streamed YesMovies.
Very few cinemas in Germany
In Germany, the fans will probably only limited benefit to experience “The Irishman” in theaters. The reason is also that many cinemas Netflix movies generally do not want to show – in protest against the short movie window. Finally, the film is not even two weeks is after the first film showings already at Netflix ready.
We expect that there will be next week in Germany many full houses when held the individual performances from November 14 of 2019. The biggest problem for most German cinema fans should not be to get a ticket. Since “The Irishman” will run only in a few theaters, it would be difficult for many movie fans outside the big cities to find even a movie theater near them. And then they have to give up the cinema experience or fork out extra money to go to the next town.

The double-edged sword with Netflix
So the cooperation of Martin Scorsese with Netflix is a double-edged sword. Without the streaming service would have probably never given the film (for almost ten years no one wanted him finance in Hollywood). But because of the streaming service, it is incredibly difficult (or partially expensive), to see the film where it belongs and its best effect unfolds: the movies!
In the end, then predominates in us the joy that there is “The Irishman” at all. Finally, Martin Scorsese’s mafia swan song is saustark not only because of his outstanding lead actor trio.
