A film screening is the displaying of a motion picture or film. Sometimes the term refers to a special showing as part of a film's production and release cycle, but it is also used for a routine event open to the public. To show the film to best advantage, special screenings my take place in plush, low seat-count theaters with very high quality (sometimes especially certified) projection and sound equipment, and can be accompanied by food and drink and spoken remarks by producers, writers, or actors. Special screenings typically occur outside normal theatrical showing hours.
