Park Circus has been appointed as repertory theatrical sales representative for Paramount’s library.
Paramount Pictures International (PPI) and Park Circus have announced that, effective Dec 1, Park Circus has been appointed as repertory theatrical sales representative for Paramount’s library.
The deal covers all territories outside of the US and Canada and was signed by United International Pictures (UIP), the Paramount and Universal owned distribution JV, on behalf of Paramount and Park Circus Films.
Negotiations were handled for UIP by David Bristow, executive director of non-theatrical, John Mirisch, senior vice president international distribution oversaw for Paramount and joint managing directors Nick Varley and John Letham represented Park Circus.
Wings (1929), Sunset Boulevard (1950), Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961), The Godfather (1972) and Saturday Night Fever (1977) are among the titles in Paramount’s library. Park Circus will now work closely with exhibitors, festivals and programmers to re-release Paramount’s library.
“It’s not hard to be impressed by the passion, energy and expertise of Nick, John and their team, we are excited to be working with them on Paramount’s spectacular library,” Bristow commented.
Varley added: “From the earliest days of Hollywood, in fact for 100 years, Paramount has been a world leader in motion pictures. Park Circus is delighted to have concluded this deal to handle the Paramount library and we look forward to working with David Bristow and his team at UIP to get these truly fantastic classics back on the big screen.”
