Hi everyone! 

Cinemas in Russia show special TV cartoons every 2 weeks. For example, now playing: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10915806/

This edition contains one episode of this TV shows for kids https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7037778/https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7520728/https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8091356/ and some others.

How should I add this sketch films? Should it add as a movie or as a TV show? I remind that it plays in cinemas every 2 week.

I hope for your help!

Hi Alexey -

To clarify, an episode of an existing Children's series is screened in the cinema, and you are trying to determine how to add this release to the site, is that correct?

If so, can you confirm if the episode is re-screened as a standalone title or as part of a series with episodes from other children's series?

Hi Alexey,

Just to confirm then that these cinema releases consist of episodes from multiple tv series at the same time within one showing? Was there any additional content produced solely for the cinema release or is it just the episodes aired back-to-back? Do you have any sources we can use to confirm this?

Thank you for answer!

 

Yes, these releases consist of episodes from multiple TV series at the same time. They are going one by one. Moreover, these are new episodes of TV shows. After cinema release, they are going on TV or Internet.

I have only Russian sources.

Here is official site: https://multvkino.tlum.ru/

In addition, there are all pages about these releases on Kinopoisk.ru. For example:

https://www.kinopoisk.ru/film/1297237/ = https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10930926/

https://www.kinopoisk.ru/film/1291042/ = https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10915806/

Moreover, here is official YouTube channel, where you can find all trailers (Russian) for this releases: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsX8Q2Q2M4qA8Jes-jH7q8w/featured

Hi Alexey,

Well this is an interesting case! Normally in these situations we would list the credits and information from the cinema release on its own standalone title page as it is the "first release", then the episodes should be added as a "shell" (without any credits to avoid duplicating the work on the associated name pages) and with movie connections linking to the movie.

However, in this case the cinema release is solely the individual episodes being aired together and very much being promoted as a way to watch the episodes in the cinema.

In light of this I think it makes most sense to list these the other way around - add the credits to the episodes of the individual series and treat the cinema release as the "shell", adding movie connections linking to the episodes.

I hope this makes sense.

Thanks,
Will

Thank you for your answer!

As I understand, I need to add title like this (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10930926/) firstly and after that add movie connections linking to the episodes. What type of movie connection should I choose?
