Need A Tagline For A Sitcom Set In A Movie Theater
11/14/2012 at 7:48 AM ET
Looking for a tagline that captures what its like to work in a movie theater. Not focusing on "the crazy customers" but the bonds that employees make while working in a unique environment that screens feature films all day.

firstly an environment that screens feature films all day is hardly unique, is it?
There are several million across the globe. However you are getting "warm" when you start talking about the people who work there. In any business, however commoditized - and movies, feature films are real commodities - the difference is the people who watch them and the people who make sure they get to be watched. That is where the uniqueness is to be found.
You could have something like "Behind the Screens" (in contrast to "Behind the scenes").
Hope this helps a little.
To your success,

What details can you share about the sitcom? Is it silliness, drama, horror, or something else? What's the target demographic of the viewership?

"Now Playing" immediately comes to mind or "Coming Attractions."
Don't get too analytical. Easy is usually best.

Jay Hamilton-Roth -
It's a dark comedy about a set of creative individuals who spend the season learning to break bad habits and "get their shit together". Think "Community" meets "Louie".

Tagline supports but draws in an audience also... so what is the show called or did I miss that?
11/16/2012 at 11:16 PM
I like "Now Playing" as suggested by cnolte.
Could also allude to the characters who are working at getting their act together. I agree, keep it simple.
Bow Ties & Popcorn
Back Row Feature
Take A Seat Please
The Screen Team

This also gives you a visual hook for titling, etc.
Suggests interwoven relationships.

Oops! You were looking for taglines, not names. Here's another version of my earlier post, now including taglines:
Comedy coming soon to a TV near you
A serial comedy about reel relationships
Hot comedy with extra salt
