Blind Bidding (Entertainment) Law and Legal Definition

Blind bidding with reference to entertainment law requires an exhibitor or a theater owner to bid on a movie without seeing it. The monies offered by an exhibitor or a theatre owner for the right to show a film are referred to as bid. Usually, along with the bid amount, a guarantee regarding the dates, tenure of exhibition and advertising devices also must be given. In blind bidding, a bid should be made without seeing the film. In some states guarantees and advances are banned.
