Proper movie theatre insurance allows you to transfer the risks of operating a cinema so you can focus on marketing and growing your business.


Do You Need Movie Theatre Insurance?

Yes: Film house insurance allows you to obtain financing at the bank and it helps you avoid bankruptcy caused by accidents in your theater. These are some examples of repairs and lawsuits that can happen:

  • A yoga instructor slips on spilled drink in the dark and blows out a knee and sues for loss of future earnings.
  • Customer gets sick after ordering at the concession and blames food for lost wages.
  • Bathrooms are vandalized causing a flood.
  • Promotional displays are knocked over and the distributor demands payment to replace.
  • The building burns to the ground or is damaged in an earthquake.
  • Digital projector breaks down causing business interruption until a repair or replacement occurs.

You likely need protection for:

  • Commercial theater property coverage: This covers the building and contents, such as: desktops and other office equipment, cash machines, digital projectors, screens, seating, etc.
  • Business interruption coverage: This protects against lost business income and pays for on-going operating expenses if you need to shut down.
  • Commercial theatre general liability coverage: This pays for bodily injury and property damage due to your negligence (e.g., a guest falls down the stairs from the balcony and sues because the carpet was not glued down on one of the stairs).
