The forced shutdown of theaters during the COVID pandemic and the impact of the pandemic on film releases was very rough on theater exhibitors and many were forced to significantly reduce staffing levels.  As COVID restrictions have eased and theaters have re-opened, the theater exhibition and film industries are starting to bounce back. However, a return to pre-pandemic staffing levels and capabilities will likely take a significant period of time. To remain competitive and accelerate the recovery from the pandemic, exhibitors must move forward with projects that will entice customers to return to theaters.


We believe this new division of IT 4 the Planet is uniquely positioned to assist theaters accelerate this recovery from the effects of the pandemic.

At IT 4 the Planet, we’ll help theater owners focus on the following:

  • Theater Operations with a focus on revenue and profit enhancement
  • Theater Technology
  • Staff Development
  • Theater expansion/conversion Project Management (i.e., installing recliners or making in theatre modifications/enhancements)
  • Theater relationship building with key industry partners like Fandango, POS providers, Comscore, etc.
  • Theater Slip and Fall expert witness support (for both the plaintiff and the defendant)


Our recent success assisting The Eastern Band of the Cherokees (Kituwah LLC) with a number of issues at their Cherokee, NC theatre includes enhancing overall theater operations to improved revenue and profit, employees support, technology enhancement/issues, project management including installing recliners in all auditoriums, enhancing their relationship with key industry players and other miscellaneous tasks.
