Instructor: Mark O’Meara
Coordinator: Patricia Bangs

Learn the highs and lows of operating an independent movie theatre in the multiplex era. Mark O’Meara, whose Cinema Arts and University Mall Theatres in Fairfax attract a loyal following, will share his years of experience as a film theatre owner. Whether it’s traveling to film festivals to scout out future offerings, enticing film distributors to share more prints of first-run films, or devising creative fund-raising campaigns, O’Meara will discuss all aspects of the complex, but creative, business of owning a movie theatre.
Mark O’Meara purchased the Cinema Arts Theatre in the Fair City Mall in 1999 and has owned the University Mall Theatres on Braddock Road near George Mason University since 1991. He is the former owner of theatres in Manassas, Sterling, and Herndon.
