next Trek series pilot in cinemas - limited event

I heard Broken Bow costs about $8-$10 million to make. Double it for advertisement Your going to get return on that in the first week.
1. Do you have a source for the production budget for "Broken Bow"

2. Does anyone know how much the TOS "The Menagerie" in 2007 in cinemas brought in moneywise for CBS Television home video division?

3. With the fanbase of Trek will fans be willing to pay for this limited event after the next 1 or 2 Trek feature films? How much $ would be estimated for cinema ticket profits?

Re: next Trek series pilot in cinemas as double feature from Paramount

I think one-night or limited-engagements are going to be the new pay-per-view.
From concerts (in 2-D or 3-D) to sports games (in 3-D) people will pay for it.

Yes ESPN is launching the first all 3D sports TV network, ESPN 3D for at-home and in sports bar viewing this Spring. Even the X-Games this Summer will be in 3-D.

At the cinema though
Tickets are $15, $20, $25 (depending on theater). for tonight's game and Monday Monday April 5 for the Men’s Final Four Semi-Finals & Championship basketball games in about 50 movie theaters around the country and this is from CBS Sports and Cinedigm Digital Theaters.

Yes THAT CBS which also owns the Star Trek TV series property!

I still believe there is room for scripted content to have the niche audiences willing to pay for it such as the next Trek 90 minute pilot. Not created with the sole intention of cinema release but as almost a Blu-ray/DVD release as well as a back door pilot to a 12 episode series? The cinema screening could be more promotional with a 2 or 3 day only screening.

At the moment there are two theater chains I know of that have digital screenings of one-night or limited-engagements :
Celebration Cinema
http://celebrationcinema.com/?pid=30559
Fathom
http://www.ncm.com/Fathom/Upcoming/

and Celebration Cinema has older films they are screening such as....Star Trek The Motion Picture! 3/29 and 3/31 Damn. missed them.
http://celebrationcinema.com/?pid=184&id=1980

How much would you be willing to pay see new Trek pilot as a limited engagement? $12.?
in 3-D? $15-20.?

Unfortunately we won't see the cost of major cinema chains doing the $5. screenings. No they would be more of an event.

I have found a source and a new figure in 2001 dollars.
The 2 hour long pilot, "Broken Bow" cost $3.75 Million to produce.
