What would the penalty be for publicly exhibiting
a downloaded, pirated copy of a new movie? Not simply in your basement or something, but at an actual movie theater?

I assume there would potentially be additional charges on top of whatever people getting busted for downloading new movies get charged with. Would it make it even worse, legally, if they advertised the fact that they were screening it? Would it be worse if the film weren't out on DVD yet? (I am in the US, and trying to talk some friends out of doing something stupid).
