I run a small town single screen theater, only open on weekends. Been looking for a simple accounting software package for a movie theater. Don't need POS terminals, or ticking printing. Just something to crunch the numbers, keep the books, and print out boxoffice statements for the distributors.
I can use DOS, Win 3.1, or Win 95 platforms.

I hate to confess that we run a 3 screen, no computerized accounting at all!, no point of sale, no scan, and all our tickets were there in inventory when we bought the place. The tiks say .25$ each! They still work! I guess I'd add to the starter question if you were looking for a starter system/program what would be the easiest most simple software?

I know of one off the shelf back office program that could be customized and two others for the theatre business.

The off the shelf is Real World, accounting with some POS functionality, takes some work to customize but you might be able to work with it.

Mcallister (sp?) out of Boston Mass. This company took the old GA package from Sonderling Broadcasting Corp (S.B.C., purchased by Hoyts) and marketed it.

The other is Crane Atlanta, owned by Ken and Gene Crane. Crane has done backoffice for a number of circuits.

The theatre programs handle booking, film accounting, distributor payment calculation, tax calcultaion, settlement, etc.

I'm not sure of the price range or ease of use of either of these. They may be overkill for what you need.
