As a person who is keen on setting up a movie theater, you have the option of either having a purpose-built theater or having to convert an ordinary house into a movie theater. Most people end up having to take the second option: of converting an ordinary house into a movie theater. Indeed, with the exception of the big chains such as Regal and Cinemark that are able to design and construct movie theaters at preferred locations from scratch, most of the other smaller entrepreneurs looking to set up movie theaters have to do with the option of converting ordinary houses into movie theaters.
In converting an ordinary house into a movie theater, the first thing you may need to do is to sound-proof the house: so that outside noise doesn’t interfere with the people watching the movies inside.
In converting an ordinary house into a movie theater, the second thing you may need to do is to install proper ventilation, to ensure that the people watching movies inside won’t suffocate! It is also at this point that you may consider putting in place air conditioning.
In converting an ordinary house into a movie theater, the third thing you may need to do is to paint the house in the appropriate colors, before installing the movie screens and starting to announce movie shows. Of course, you also have to install the right types of upholstered chairs, ideally with every successive row being slightly higher than the row before it, in order to ensure that even short people are not obscured from the screens. And there is the small matter of obtaining the necessary permits, before you can open for business.
