Advice on new movie theater in Latin American country

posted by ralem2 on August 6, 2010 at 10:40 am

I need some advice on how to start a movie theater. My idea is opening a small cinema in a Latin American country where there are traditional movie theater lovers. I have no experience in the industry, except how to appreciate a good movie and good service.

I just have the gut feeling that this idea will work. My idea is framed on a 100 to 200 seat movie theater. For budget and practical reasons, I prefer used equipment, including the seats.

I welcome all suggestions and offers.

Ralem.

First you need to check the local laws in the area where you want to build to see what they require. Then you need to check with the distributors of films to see if they are available in that area. International Cinema Equipment usually has the best prices on used equipment (www.iceco.com). Aster Seating has the best prices on used seating (www.asterseating.com). Good luck.
