Under writs filed to the High Court and District Court July 19, Golden Scene is seeking $358,994 in outstanding payments. The companies — City Entertainment, Conneway Films, Real Merry and Rich Will — agreed to exhibit Golden Scene-distributed movies including “The Others” and “Gosford Park” and to split the revenue.
