How about you just run a small 3 screen theater that makes profit by buying the reels from movies that've been in theaters a while and playing them on your screens and charging $2 a showing.
They had a theater like this when I was growing up and they made bank.
You could also have a retro night, where you play an old movie, and you could bid for reels of limited release movies, so you could get indie movies!
People in Baton Rouge would love you. And by people I mean 2-5 posters on the M/TV Board who hate driving to Canal Place Cinema.
FWIW Cinemark at Perkins Rowe is doing a good job of getting these films.
