So, I gotta ask (hopefully it hasn't been asked yet), but what is the plan once you open?
I mean, are you going to have a website with movies and show times posted up? Are people going to need to make reservations?
You are going to have this amazing spot with an audio system that will trump almost every commercial theater out there, but are you planning on subjecting patrons to reference volume? Or are you just going to have head room available if you need it for large parties, ect… You planning on each table dining by candle light as to not detract from the movie? Or do the patrons to eat first (plans to serve food?) then enjoy a bottle of wine while they take in the movie of the night? Plans to have comfy lounge chairs for everyone, or are you going with easily stackable wooden dining chairs one would find in most restaurants?
I guess my questions are slightly off topic from a home theater - A/V perspective, just wanting to get the "big picture" perspective from the business side of the house. My wife drags me to wineries frequently and I've never came across something like this! If we had anything like this local to me, I'd frequent it often!
Also, I have a quick suggestion. I'm not sure if anyone else has mentioned this, but you have done A LOT of great things on this thread and for those who stumble across your thread, I could see a table of contents in your first post as being very beneficial. It would be nice to if you were to link your Table of Contents to the applicable posts of your thread, such as:Table of Contents
