HACKENSACK, NJ — Does anyone know about a historic theatre near Hackensack called the Queen Anne Theatre?
It is located right next to Route 80 and is visible from there. It is a reddish brick building with the named facing the highway. It also has a flyloft in the back. It looks like it is no longer in use from the stores in the front and the windows look real shabby.
I could not find a listing for it and wondered if anyone knew about its history.

LIMA, OH — Does anyone know anything about the old Ohio Theater in Lima Ohio? As far as I know it’s been a nightclub that has changed its music styles during the past 20 years. But does anyone know anything more than that? Is the current owner looking to sell, or willing to consider it?

I am trying to find someone to provide me with some guidance regarding a business plan that I am writing for a movie theater start-up in New England.
Some of my questions include 1.) What are studio distribution prices/packages for old films and new films?; 2.) Is there a rule-of-thumb on theater size and screen size?; 3.) What does equipment, new or used, cost?
Please email me or post any advice you might have. You can’t imagine how helpful you will be to me.
