movie recommendation for fundraiser?
For a different type of fundraiser, we're thinking of renting a local theater, showing a fire flick, and inviting the public to a special showing. What's your movie recommendation? Ladder 49? Backdraft? Any other recommendation?

Very bad move!!
Have you considered the penalty for showing a copyrighted movie to the public??
Stick with fill the boot, chicken, pancake dinners, bar-b-ques!!!Stay Safe and Well Out There....

Since you're in a theater, I assume you are addressing CaptOldTimer's concerns. If not, you better do so.
As far as the choice of movie, I wouldn't show some fifteenth-run fire movie to the general public. Backdraft in particular is too dumb and unrealistic, and might be a tad racy for a family audience.
My suggestion would be to see if the theater would let you operate the place for a traditionally poorly attended screening time, like a weeknight, and let you keep the profit. That way you could show first-run stuff and avoid copyright problems.“I am more than just a serious basketball fan. I am a life-long addict. I was addicted from birth, in fact, because I was born in Kentucky.”
