HEY EVERYONE!
There's Theme Parks And Famous Players has created the "Theme Theatre".

Their 4 theatres are the Colossus, Coliseum, SilverCity and Paramount. The Colossus takes the spaceship theme and has Imax screens. The Coliseum is a round theatre with wedge shaped auditoriums. SilverCity is themed with lots of Hollywood glamour. The Paraount theatre is a specialty theatre that has lots of memoribillia from old theatres and is a cheap slacker.

Why can't other chains do themes? It'd be cool!

Some Ideas Are:
Under Water Theme
Mine Theme
Cave Theme
70's Theme
Prehistoric Times Theme
Year 5000 Theme

Anymore Ideas/suggestions... Or comments?

Some Themes

Many other theatres have themes or themed auditoria, AMC and Leows both have locations with themed auditoria, and I am certain there are some other places where the entire theatre is 'themed'.

How about a penitentiary theme?

The penitentiary theme should be great. A sizeable portion of populace has already done time anyway and that should make them feel right at home.

That could be useful. If a customer started going crazy, you could just slap a restraint jacket on them!
