This basic fantasy horror examines discovered film of a group of youngsters camping, and its production cost was around $60,000 dollars. It has grossed over $250 million and spawned a whole series, complete with novels, making it one of the most successful independent films of all time.

How profitable is a drive-in movie theater? – You may earn as low as 10 percent of each ticket sold during the summer blockbuster season when you screen new films. The profit margin on concession goods is from 50 to 80 percent, but your operating expenditures will eat up all those additional earnings. If you sell out for the entire season, you might earn between $100,000 and $150,000.
How can our lighting system be automated? – When preparing for a movie and desiring to dim the lights, the last thing anyone wants to do is leave their comfy seats to turn off the light. As an entry-level option, dimmable lights with a remote control are available.
This implies that someone must manually close the blinds or drapes (if your media room has windows). To automate the entire experience and prevent an overabundance of remote controls, the most effective and enjoyable solution is a home automation package that can be operated via a tablet or other device.
Customizable and programmable, these systems may incorporate automated lighting systems, motorized blinds and curtains, video and audio system controls, and more. In terms of the lighting requirements for a media room, wall or floor lamps with low voltage bulbs are acceptable and sufficient.
