In an age of high-profile movies, theaters are finding it increasingly difficult to compete with the big screen.
And they’re becoming less and less like theaters.
Movies are becoming more cinematic and more immersive.
A theater can play up to six movies in a row, while the big-screen movie is usually between six and eight.
And there are plenty of theaters where you can’t see all the films on your big screen, since the seats are smaller.
But the problem is the theaters are still smaller than theaters in the past.
Now, with the advent of high resolution screens, theaters can become smaller and more intimate.
That means they can play even more films, which means the quality of the theater can improve as well.
And that’s where theaters like Troy Point Cinema come in.
Troy Point is a small, three-story movie theater in North Carolina, which opened in March of 2016 and now houses up to 60 movies, including films by Woody Allen, Woody Allen’s wife, and many more.
“You know, if you go into a theater and see a Woody Allen movie, it’s going to feel like you’re in a movie theater,” Troy Point CEO Mike Brown said.
“But that’s really the point.
It’s a place to be.”
That means the movie-going experience is a little more intimate, as well as a little less commercial.
“A theater is supposed to be a place for people to go and be entertained,” Brown said, and Troy Point wants to make sure it has the most intimate and exciting movie experience possible.
“There’s going be a lot of people sitting in chairs in a theater.
And I want people to feel that,” Brown added.
Troy is not alone.
Last year, theaters across the country were experiencing an influx of new moviegoers.
And a new study released by the movie industry association shows that theaters have also seen a surge in the number of movies they play.
“The movie industry’s in a really good place right now,” Brown told the Washington Post.
“I think it’s been really well supported, and I think we’re in the middle of the best year for movie theater attendance in 20 years.
I think it has been a great opportunity to be at the forefront of it.”
In fact, Troy Point’s new location is just one of many locations where theaters are adding new movie theaters.
In 2017, theater owners in all 50 states opened about 2,000 new movie screens.
And more than 70% of theaters in North America are now located in smaller theaters, according to a study by the National Association of Theater Owners.
That’s an improvement over the past few years.
And, in a few years, theaters will have a greater amount of space to play movies.
In a 2015 study by New York Times columnist and theater critic William Safire, Safire pointed to an increase in theaters that are opening up across the nation.
“In 2015, movie theaters in cities across the United States, like New York and Los Angeles, were struggling to fill their screens,” he wrote.
“That year, a new industry, the Internet-driven video-on-demand (iTOD) industry, led by the likes of Netflix, allowed movies and television shows to be downloaded from any of the nation’s more than 200 movie theaters.”
Safire’s report also showed that more than half of U.S. theaters now have more than 60 screens.
With that kind of space, it is easy to imagine the movie theaters of the future.
And Troy Point says it has plenty of space in the works for future theaters.
“We have all the space in Troy Point,” Troy point CEO Brown said in an interview with National Review.
“It’s a very efficient space.
It is a great space for the kinds of films that we want to be able to show.”
Troy Point also owns theaters in New York City and Chicago.
The theater also owns two other theaters in Los Angeles.
Troy point has already announced plans to expand to San Diego, but Brown said the company plans to keep the current location open in the future, just as it did in the early days of Troy Point.
“If we get another 50 screens, we will be open for a few more years,” Brown explained.
“What we’re looking to do is have two new theaters open in 2020.
And we plan to have another two in 2021.
And then we’ll be open at least another two more times in 2022.”
And that number of new theaters could grow, Brown said—it’s just a matter of when.
“Our current goal is to have more screens open for about three to five years, so it’s very achievable, if we can get our movie house up and running,” Brown revealed.
“And then we will hopefully be able, eventually, to have one or two more theaters open and become very profitable.”
