  • Shivendu Shrivastava beginner adviser said on November 4, 2014
    Dear All, I have seen most of you are interested to open 100-150 seats Cinema hall, Its really good because most of Multiplexes shrinking their model from 300-350 seats to 150-200 seats. Believe me or not but there is really huge scope in Cinema Industry, As per survey India still needs more than 20000 cinema halls to entertain Indians. There are opportunity to setup a cinema hall with the sitting capacity of 80-100-120-150 and more then that. What all you need is minimum area of 1500sqft, height of the property is more than 14 ft, and Investment money. Also there are so much analysis before starting up a Cinema Hall such as Entertainment tax (Vary state wise), Location, Population, Documentation, Film Distributors etc. There are states with in India with 0% entertainment tax and states having 100% entertainment tax as per govt policy. If you required further details please contact me or mail me. We are Mumbai based Cinema Development Consultant. We will be happy to help you.

  • Kathy O. said on July 13, 2016
    Hi, I am really interested in opening a small theater, 100-125 seating catering to the disabled population specifically those with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Many that fall in this category love movies and music but because they may make noise or not like the room completely dark it is always a disaster to these family to go the movies. Securing a venue will not be a problem just understanding of how films are secured and shown and if it is better to be independent or to look into a franchise. Any assistance would be grateful.

  • Braslm Media Ent. LLp expert adviser said on May 9, 2017
    @alfred, Movie theater business in not a traditional business, before entering into this business many things need to be evaluated. You need to focus on three areas land requirement, investment and ROI. There are many departments involved in the process like TCP, Municipal, Fire, Electric etc. As far as financial support is concerned you should contact you local bank manager for the same.
