Gary Moore is an entertainment executive who has spent more than three decades working in cinema and theater. He is the current Chief Executive Officer and owner of Premiere Cinemas, which he founded in the 1990s. He understands why movies are so attractive to people of all ages. Here are three reasons people seek out the theater in order to be entertained.
Movie theaters are easily accessible. There’s a movie theater almost everywhere in the United States and that’s because they’ve been so popular ever since moving picture cinema was invented. You won’t have to travel far in order to enjoy the latest movie, and some cinemas even offer guests viewings of classic films that came out in the past.
Modern cinemas come with a variety of new features and attractions. In addition to the improved general technology of the film industry over the last decade, modern cinemas have made a special effort to cater to more people. There are some theaters that have bars and restaurant style food that can be served during a film. Dinner and movie no longer has to be at two separate places.
It provides social connections. Movies bring people together and help them bond over a shared experience. If you want to really get to know someone, take them to a movie and give yourself time to talk about it afterward; it will provide insight.
“If you can’t decide what to do with your night, just think about the social experience that comes from a night at the movies,” explains Gary Moore, “theaters can provide an experience that we just can’t get at home.”
