Frequently Asked Questions

Why do Movie Theaters need insurance?

Establishments in the motion picture theater industry provide motion picture and film viewing services. Businesses include drive-ins, small and large movie theaters and stock footage film libraries. Businesses may also specialize in film distribution and may host film festivals or movie exhibitions or premiers.

Movie theaters need insurance to protect the business from the many known and unknown risks. If your business encounters risks like a fire, an employee or customer injury or a liability claim, it will cost your business a lot of out-of-pocket expenses. With insurance, these risks are covered, so any big and immediate expenses won't be a problem. The insurance will cover the expenses until it reaches its limits.
