Back in the 1980s, local theatres were a hit. It was one of the most lucrative businesses, however; it slowly died down due to the social changes occurred during the past decade. People fell in love with the idea of one-stop-shop which resulted in skyscrapers dominating the land. More malls were built, more people patronize them while lesser people visit the local cinema in their own town.
Local Cinemas will Always be Part of History
Local cinemas were there when people were already contented with black and white films. When things are much simpler, local cinemas satisfied the entertainment needs of the locals. However, people tend to forget the place they used to love. Needless to say, local cinemas will always be part of history. It is part of the revolution of movies from simple graphics to high definition but somehow it did not keep up with the change. Though there might be bigger malls having to present you with all the things you want in one place, let’s not forget our local cinemas.
Extra Steps To Help
Local movie houses don’t earn as much as the bigger cinemas you find in malls. As much as they want to keep up with the technology and improving the infrastructure of the theatre, it is really difficult for them to do so due to low-profit margin. They are clinging to people who have a taste for the old ways but as we all know, these are just a few groups of people. Aside from buying tickets and watching films at your local movie house, you can also check if there are other programs where you can participate. Local movie houses somehow metamorphose into cultural and activity centres to keep people coming.
Help Them Through Blogging
Most of local movie house owners are in their 50’s. So, most of the time, they don’t know how powerful social media and blogging can be. You can volunteer to help them and promote the local movie house in your area through your blog post. Invite more people to come in. Ask them what they movies they would like to see so that the owner may feature them.
