For the next several weeks, the National Geographic Society has partnered with TripAdvisor, the online marketplace for movie tickets, to help readers plan their next trip.
The Society is calling on readers to post a trip request on TripAdress, the popular ticketing service, with an entry to make a $150k annual income from renting out a movie in the United States.
This could mean making a trip to any of the following theaters: AMC, AMC-Chinatown, AMC+E+C, AMC+, AMC+, A24, AMC, Cineplex, AMC.com, Cineworld, Cinemark, Cinemax, AMC Cinemas, Cinemarks.com and Cinemax+E+, Cinemark+, AMC+O+, AMC+.
The submission must include a link to the TripAdsense website with the following information:Name of the movie: title of the film(s): location of the theater(s) to be rented out: the cost of the ticket(s), including fees for security, parking, etc.
Total cost of ticket(es) (including fees): The trip must be booked for the next four weeks.
If the trip request is successful, the Society will send a representative to the location of the trip, which is typically a hotel, restaurant, theater, or club.
The Society will also send an email to the mailing address associated with the Tripadvisor account, so that the subscriber can verify the address.
The submission will be reviewed by TripAdvisors staff, who will verify the request.
If it meets the criteria, the TripAdvocate will be contacted to provide an estimate of the income potential.
If a TripAdressor account is not working correctly, the subscriber will need to log into the TripAddict app on their smartphone to verify their trip.
If TripAdriers account is working correctly and the subscriber successfully completes the submission, the trip will be listed as “approved.”
The Society will then send an invoice for the entire cost of tickets for the movie to the subscriber.
