Falls River is a smaller town that lost its only movie theatre over 10 years ago. Residents can now drive approximately 30 miles to see a movie. The theatre is usually a mega-plex of antiseptics, devoid of any character once they arrive.
Falls River Theatre will bring Falls River residents a long-awaited local movie theatre. The second run of most popular films in two markets will be shown: young adults as well as families. The building that will house the facility is the historic old theatre building, built in 1936 and long-time home to the town’s acting companies. It has been used for community functions only since its closure. The building’s owners will restore it to its former glory before the grand reopening.
The two owners, Samantha Farmer and Steve Brinksman have the skills, expertise and capital to make this theatre succeed. Samantha has managed large movie houses for seven-years. She has developed skills in theatre management, movie selection, and established important relationships in the industry. Steve is able to renovate and update the building to make it comfortable and welcoming.
With an substantial initial investment by the owners, we see modest profits by year two.
