A theatrical movie, usually a major blockbuster, that runs past it's designated release season (i.e. summer releases playing into fall, holiday movies in January or later, etc.) to the point where only a few theaters are showing them anymore, and there are usually less than ten people in the audience, and chances are most of them already saw it during it's initial release period.
