My entire life, no matter where I have lived in this state, I have always had to travel an hour or more to see a film at an actually decent movie theater. Even in situations like where I am at now, when I live in a town with a sizable first run theater, it always sucks, usually badly, in terms of technical quality (auditoriums with blown speakers, projectors never in focus) and customer service. Just an hour south in Wichita there is a privately owned chain of 3-4 theaters owned and operated by a guy who basically took the concept of a film buff's dream theater and made it reality. All the auditoriums are THX, the sound is always pitch perfect in every auditorium, and the picture is so pitch perfect you'd have to see it to believe it. The tickets are resonably priced, the refreshment prices destroy those of the garbage chains like Dickinson and even the decent chains like AMC. Enough babbling.....where does one get information about starting a theater? I'm talking about construction, financing, equipment, everything and anything you could have any knowledge of. Any info at all would be helpful. I know I can't do something near as grand as the chain in Wichita, but even a small scale 2-3 auditorium theater here, with the necessary TLC and actual care for quality, would do good business.
