Small Startup Looking for a Theater
I am spearheading a startup venture. The Startup is simply this, “To Open and Operate a Vaudeville Era Theater”. I have come up with a concept which will revolutanize theater operations. The concept is not for public consumption so I can’t post it, however under the right circumstances (non disclosure) I would be willing to discuss it with you.
For proper implementation, this venture requires a theater which is in decent architectural/structural condition, the theater MUST have a stage and a balcony, an orchestra pit would be nice but not mandatory.
I am in the process of selling my house to make this happen, I personally own a very large collection of Public Domain films as well as all the equipment needed to start 3 theaters (and allow them to operate to my specifications).
Cutting to the point, at the present time I could potentially purchase a theater in an outer lying area and make this venture a reality, however if I could shy away from selling off my house I would prefer it.
Here’s a proposition, if you like the sound of it then let’s talk, if you don’t like what I’ve written, no flames, I apologize for wasting the bandwidth.
I propose the following:
I will operate a/the theater in a way which will get strong community recognition and bring the theater to the visibility of just about everyone through positive media exposure.
For a small town, this would increase property value, tourism revenue, etc.
I will operate the theater in proper consideration of local demographics, if need be it will be run as non-profit with ultra-low admission prices.
What I ask is full/absolute use of a theater building, in return the person who grants this will receive fifty percent of my profits for life.
The profits will be determined after operating costs have been paid, I will pay all taxes out of my portion (or if NPO, proper displacement).
The person who provides this theater will receive the rights to have and transfer their share of the profits without any restrictions.
Also, the person providing this building will in all accounts, never have to work ever again as my forcasting predicts a high return.
I would require co-owner status on the title in order to make this legal.
You let me use your theater, you have cash for life.
If my proposal works I gain the satisfaction of putting my plan into operation, I do not gain anything else, films are a serious hobby of mine and operating a theater would be the best outlet for my efforts.
I don’t expect this proposal to work, I would be lucky if someone wanted to let me use their facility, however before I sell my house and buy one, I’ll see if there’s someone with a Vacant Building which they have no use for.
The Location of the theater is not important, any US City and State would be acceptable, the only limitation is that the building must meet my demographic requirements and be clean (no Cracktown USA Buildings need apply).
I plan to purchase a theater within 6 months, if you have something which you could offer, please send me an email.
Also, please don’t try to talk me out of it, I’ve heard the horror stories and the warnings, this is a chance I’m willing to take.
I know that money may not be immediate or that my predictions may be off, I have four demographic studies which have a good, bad, and ugly scenario. I have no concerns even if things get ugly.
Also, think of the good you’d be doing, I would employ people :–)
Thank You for your time.
