Movie Theater Franchises That Could Take Off In 2021

Still a place to hang out with friends and family to catch the new flicks on the big screen, here are four movie theater franchises that could take off in 2021.

Despite COVID-19 causing several movie theaters to close across the globe, a recent Good Morning America article explained that the future could be bright for the industry. With federal aid available to the business owners and the vaccine rolling out across the country, the industry could certainly see a post-COVID boom once it is safe to gather again. Below is a list of four movie theater franchises to check out!

K9 Cinemas

Since more folks decided to get a furry friend during the pandemic, K9 Cinemas is the perfect place where pets and their owners can enjoy a film on the big screen. There is a designated place for pets to play with one another at each of the theaters, otherwise, they should be kept on leashes while at the cinema. 

Alamo Drafthouse Cinema

An upscale, dine-in theater concept, Alamo Drafthouse Cinema offers food and beverage services at every seat. A full bar is included at each location where moviegoers can engage in pre and post-film conversations and grab a drink. Even though streaming is becoming more popular, Alamo is seeing continued growth with plans for expansion. 

Celebration Cinema

Based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Celebration Cinema has locations across the state. The theaters are currently still open Thursday through Sunday, but concessions cannot be consumed indoors due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

B&B Theaters

B&B Theaters is the sixth-largest chain in North America. The chain was started by two families, Bills and Bagby, who launched the business in the 1980s. B&B offers moviegoers an unforgettable experience thanks to their DOLBY 7.1 Surround Sound system and stadium seating with high-back chairs.
