Possible evolution for Westmont Theatre?

4 days ago the USA Today ran a story on how local movie theatres, like the Westmont, are branching out to do other events through simulcastingbroadcasting programs/events on more than one medium at the same time.

Image going to a theatre, like the Westmont, to see the following:

  •  Sports (SuperBowl, World Series, Stanley Cup, Nascar, PGA Tour, Boxing, etc…)
  • Music Concerts
  • NY Metropolitan Opera
  • Award Shows (Oscars, Grammys, Golden Globes, etc…)
  • Presidential Speeches (State of the Union Addresses, Senate debates, etc…)

‘Theatre Movies are perfectly positioned to be community centers’, says Robert Thompson, director fo the Bleier Center for Television and Popular Culture at Syracuse University.

Imagine if the Westmont became a community center where you can see not only a motion picture, but a presidential speech or a sporting event or a concert. It would return the Westmont to one of the founding reasons it was built: bring people together from all around through entertainment.
