I am wanting to start a 6 screen discount first run theater in a small town in ks, The theater is currently empty and has been for around 4 years. It is pretty much in need of a complete redue inisde. Needs new carpeting and seats, screens, all equiptment. There is one other theater in town but it really sucks they do not take care of it at all the only problem is its owned by carmike and i have heard they can be very mean or very competitive and wil do what it takes to stay the only theater in the town. I love the theater its like a second home to me but i get so tired of seeing run down theaters and so called nice ones that you wonder where they are spending there money cuzz its not on the presentation or the audutorium. I want to know where i could find funding i have approved through the bank a loan but they are asking that i come up with roughly $350,000 to $400,000 in my own money or capitol in grants or real estate or something. Where would one start looking for this money? There is what i consider the greatest theater entuerpner of recent times. BIll warren of the warren theaters in wichita and newton kansas and springfield missouri. [url=http://www.warrentheater.com,]http://www.warrentheater.com,[/url] http://www.palacemovies.com
I thought about approching him for a grant or to see if he would be interested in working with me but i dont know how to approch someone for a grant or partnership. What would you all recomend for help in finding the needed money and also the needed partner in this venture? if anyone here is interested in either let me know. any help would be great. thanks so much
