so, i've come up with a plan. how i'm going to execute this plan, i don't know. but at least i have a plan.

and what is this plan? well, i'm going to rent a movie theatre. but not for the sole purpose of showing movies. no, opening a new movie theatre would be a bad business move, as the theatre i want, which had been around for quite some time, was forced to close. i'm guessing due to Loews Theatre at the waterfront. i know i would prefer going there. so, no, no new place to see the latest blockbuster hits. so what else can you do with your own movie theatre? why, turn it into the ultimate place to find entertainment, that's what! in the main part of the theatre will be the performance room. also known as my very own concert venue. i may actually need to combine two rooms to have a large enough space, which would mean i'd need to buy instead of rent the theatre. but we'll see. in another room will be the music store. CDs and instruments. depending on how many rooms there are i may have one of each. another room will be the bookstore. and i'll have an actual theatre in another room. moreso to show indie films and student films, though. our own sundance. and in the foyer will be the coffee shop, which also serves light snacks, pastries and other refreshements. actually, considering the number of renovations i'd have to do, i probably will need to buy it. hmm...

so, now that i have a plan, all i need are investors. and blueprints. and a business partner that's much better than i am at convincing people they should give me money. it's totally possible, though. and i think it'd be the raddest place ever. maybe i can even get a contract with some big named organization to have live broadcasts, kind of like what the 9:30 Club does with NPR. then there'll be even more incentive for bands to come and play. this could be a good thing. this could be an awesome thing. i wish i knew how to make it happen.

no wonder we get along so well.

my goal in life is to own my own venue. i already have a property picked out, and a lot of the logistics worked out...its just the financials that im having trouble with, as i have none of my own money.

Maybe then they might let you into the Secret Society of Canada!

Don't forget - you can also rent the stage area out for bands / musicians in general to have some practice sessions. Thats what a local theater around here does. :)
