What is a challenge? How does a challenge work?

A hold may be challenged if you are ready to book. If you would like to Challenge, then we will need a credit card form
filled out and sent back to us to guarantee payment. We would then give the people holding that time 2 business hours to
confirm or release. If they confirm, it is theirs and no charge to you. If they release, we will charge your credit card and it
is yours. There is no backing out of a Challenge, once we issue the challenge


What is your cancellation policy?

Payment is due once a screening is booked, and there are no refunds. At our discretion we frequently offer a morning
