Movies enrich our lives and our culture. As an independent cinema owner, you have the unique privilege–and challenge–of providing an exceptional and modern movie-going experience for your customers. From adding recliner seating to additional food and beverage concepts such as pizza ovens, we know it can be difficult to keep up with the evolving demands of the cinema industry. We’re here to help.

When it comes to upgrading your cinema or adding new amenities, you need to work with a financing partner who shares your knowledge of the industry. Our entertainment center lending team has experience providing customized movie theater financing packages to businesses all over the country. When you work with a lender who understands your industry, you don’t have to spend large amounts of time explaining your business to them, which ultimately saves you time and makes the lending process run more smoothly.

In the past, cinemas often had to fund business growth and upgrades themselves or settle for outrageous interest rates from conventional lenders. That doesn’t have to be your experience. Whether you need financing for furniture, fixtures and equipment or modernization or you’re simply looking to refinance existing debt, we’ve got you covered.
