A Wholly Subjective Top Ten List
October 24, 2008 § Leave a comment
Seattle’s alt-weekly, The Stranger, published a list this month entitled Ten Things Theaters Need to Do RIght Now to Save Themselves. Naturally, no one’s agreeing with all of these. (I love the idea of having drinks at a theater to deepen the relationship between organization and patron, but do you know much a liquor license costs? And then there’s insurance, and noise control, and parking… you get the picture.) 170 comments and still going, people are coming out with suggestions, cheers and jeers, and other highly opinionated contributions.
So: what’s your Top Ten? What do you think are the most overlooked options that could shore up a theater’s bottom line and presence in the community?
