The Movie Business Book by Jason E. Squire is pretty good. The 3rd Ed. just came out this year so it is up to date. It has chapters on just about any topic relating to movies. It also has one chapter on the exhibition side of the industry. I too am new to all this, and I found it pretty helpful.

Also, I found something called "Exhibition 101" on the forums that was great. It was put together by an exhibitor and it had LOTS of useful info. Go to: http://forums.delphiforums.com/exhibitor/messages/?start=Start+Reading+%3E%3E and scroll towards the bottom until you find "Best of SMART Board Posts" inside that folder, you will find Exhibition 101.

Not to mention, go to the FAQ on this forum. It has the best information that I found anywhere. These are smart people


Good luck,
Karla

The Business of Show Business is a book we sell here/ it's an appraisers guide to valuing movie theatres. Alo go to our booklist http://www.bigscreenbiz.com/commerce/books.cfm and spend 150.00 on the best books on the list.

There is no "how to" run a movie theatre book.
