Kevin Mitchell is the founder
The founder of ShowBiz Cinemas, Kevin Mitchell, has a history in the theater industry. While he was young, he helped his father run a theater. He worked at a midnight showing of the Rocky Horror Picture Show as a teenager. After high school, Mitchell started a construction business, but missed the thrill of running a theater. He also missed the interaction with customers.
The idea of opening family entertainment centers caught the imagination of Mr. Mitchell, who was one of the first movie theater operators to take the idea seriously. Today, ShowBiz Cinemas operates 93 movie screens and 56 bowling lanes in nine locations in three states. The founder plans to open two or three more locations a year. ShowBiz Cinemas also has a commitment to charity, including being on the board of the Chuck Norris Kickstart Kids Foundation and Variety – The Children’s Charity.
