What goes into opening a theatre. I know next to nothing about business. What important things do I need to know?

First I have to find a location and ask about the lease (property and taxes).

Then I need to learn about costs like electricity (which may not be included), water, payroll, insurance, licenses and all others that I don't know about.

What about renting films to show? and possible equipment replacement or rental?

There is so much to this that I have no idea about. Anyone know a good source I can take a look at?

Any help in answering these questions would be appreciated.

Thanks!!

You've found a good place, these boards. I recently started doing the same thing, I was told to look at all of the postings. Everything (and way more) you ever wanted to know seems to have been asked at one time or another. And, if you don't see what you are looking for, then you can ask. These folks have years of experience. I was also lucky in finding someone locally who has done this many years and has been wonderful in helping me sort this stuff out.

Long story short, we found a place, put together a business plan and got financing. But the main thing is to do the research.

Best thing I can suggest is to read the FAQ and set the default view to "show all topics". Also look at "Exhibition 101" from Rich Peterson as it sums up everything in a nutshell.
