Learn from others on successful strategies to reach younger, affluent audiences — and potential new supporters. How to target Generation X and Millennials to become long-term patrons and donors. Also, reaching out to these groups to be the perpetrators of the cinematic experience.

Show Me the Money! How to Talk Finances with your Staff and Public
We love talking about movies, but how do we talk about money at our Art Houses?  Do you share your finances with your staff?  With your members?  In how much detail?  You don’t publish salaries, do you? Do you publish an annual report?  At Renew Theaters, we have been wrestling with these questions.  This case study shows the steps we’ve taken to be more financially transparent – to both our staff and our members - and the issues that have arisen in doing so.
