LOOKING TO BUY AN INDIANA THEATRE FOR SECOND RUNS

LOOKING FOR THE SMALL TOWN AMBIENCE AND MYSTIQUE. WOULD LOVE A FIXER UPPER BUT NOTHING STRUCTURAL. LOVE THE MOVIES AND JUST WANT TO ENTERTAIN FOLKS. NOT LOOKING TO MAKE A TON OF MONEY, JUST WANT TO PUT MY OWN TOUCHES ON A THEATRE. NOT IN A HURRY, PLENTY OF TIME. IF THERE IS A THEATRE OWNER OUT THERE WHO’S PLANNING ON RETIRING IN THE NEAR FUTURE JUST GIVE ME A CALL AT 773 428-1115. ANYWHERE NEAR THE MONTICELLO AREA, A THEATRE WITH APARTMENTS WOULD BE A BONUS. YOU CAN ALSO REACH ME BY EMAIL AT

WOULD LOVE TO LEARN FROM AN EXPERIENCED CINEMA OWNER

Thanks for the suggestions, I am searching for them now. I’m not real good at navigating this site yet. This site is wonderful and filled with very helpful people. This has been a dream of mine since I was a kid. thanks everyone

Hello Countryboy,

I don’t know if you are aware of it, but you are not too far away from the absolutely gorgeous John Eberson Indiana movie theatre in Terre Haute. Instead of getting your own place…perhaps you can share some of your ideas with them. Their website has been down for a while and I am a bit concerned about that. Perhaps you could work with with them. I know you mentioned you are not looking to make a ton of money. But if you don’t need to make a living on this project, and you want to work in a beautiful theater, you might want to give them a buzz. Later if you still want your own place, the experience gained here would be priceless.

The Indiana is breathtaking. The facade alone is incredible. This theater was recently and lovely restored.

Here take a look:

Impressive, huh?

Enjoy and good luck with your endeavors.

I am with you – I would like to buy a movie house to run ‘2nd Run’ movies, but FIRST I would like to learn the business. School me…
