Movie theatre expanding to live shows

posted by popcornn on May 23, 2007 at 4:45 am

Does anyone here have any suggestions as to what equipment would be required to allow a quonset hut theatre to put on live shows, bands and other events besides just films? Is there a general ‘rule’ as to what lighting, sound, electrical equipiment, etc would be needed to allow these sort of events use your venue?

There is a stage in place and some crappy lights here and there so an operational makeover is needed! Thanks.

Hello, I used to work in a theatre which was transformed into a live music venue. You should go to their site to get some ideas:

Thank you for the info. That is the sort of thing I was hoping to find!

Yeah, its an amazing concert venue. Nirvana did their first show in Canada there. It was amazing. It might cost 100000 to set it up like that. Where is your theatre located? Would you be looking for any help? I’ve done everything from bartending to lights.
