Three years to the day from when I as hired as "manager" we have finally opened our first screen!! The owner and I have done it all from drywalling to setting seats and even designed and build our own optics system. (Our projectors are in our basement) Our town had been without an indoor for 43 years but had a twin drive-in doing 300+ cars a night on week-ends.

We'll have our second screen done in a few weeks then our third after that. The town loves it!! and we've already been told of other businesses looking to open in the empty stores around us.

We took an old department store building in the downtown and gutted it, put in slopped floors (more seating capicity) and a restaurant in our lobby.

It's great to be in this business!!!!

WOW... Sounds awesome!... Congrats on a job well done, and welcome to "Show Biz"... Your idea harkens back to an earlier era when MANY theaters were converted store buildings, and some were outstanding!... Putting the booth in the basement is an unusual concept which I would be interested in hearing more about... Best Wishes and Good Luck!...
