"When we finally re-opened, our ticket buyers dropped to 30% of pre-pandemic levels.. We have lost massive business with studios releasing their movies digitally at the same time. As a second run theater, we have to wait 36 days before we can show the hit movie. By this time, families have already seen it on their streaming channel. We may not be able to keep our doors open much longer," explains Richard Wolfe of Roxy Theater at 2004 Main St, Northampton, PA 18067. Stars to appear. Christmas carols and Christmas treats to accompany.

The family Christmas comedy movie, "The Farmer and The Belle: Saving Santaland," lost their theatrical opportunity last year due to COVID and released digitally reaching a little over 100,000 households on Amazon compared to Hallmark's Christmas movies reaching well over 2 million viewers — Even with the small reach, this family Christmas comedy movie, The Farmer and The Belle: Saving Santaland charted in the top 10 of Romance New Release movies on Amazon for six weeks after the movie hit market Nov 17, 2020.

Critics selected the family, Christmas comedy movie "The Farmer and The Belle: Saving Santaland" in the top 10 Christmas films of 2020 (Christian Post), top 15 films of 2020 (Salem Web Network's Crosswalk) and top 20 of 2020 in Allentown's Morning Call.

Let's make a new Christmas tradition together," celebrates producer Jenn Gotzon.

"As a father of five kids and small-business owner of Goodruby Christian Bookstore, my wife and I sent an email out to our customer list inviting them to The Farmer and The Belle's Saving Santaland Thanksgiving week at Harkins Theatres Casa Grande, AZ and received a great response. We will bring a table and sell items from our store afterwards. We hope this movie-going experience will create a new family Christmas tradition for our community and store to enjoy for years to come." Ken Locklin at 973 E Cottonwood Ln, Casa Grande, AZ.

We will create an experience with our customers by inviting them to see the family Christmas comedy movie, "The Farmer and The Belle: Saving Santaland" at our Rialto Theatre in Pocahontas, Iowa. We will provide the movie-goer with gift giving nostalgia from my store after seeing the film.
