A host of unique theater concepts are emerging that aim to entice the consumer away from at-home screening options such as Over-the-Top subscriptions and streaming services and back into movie theaters. From bike-in theaters that embrace sustainable methods of transportation to forward-thinking cannabis-friendly screenings, there is seemingly an unconventional cinema experience available for every taste. Hyper-niche opportunities are exposed in some of these quirky theater concepts.

Fun public viewing options like that of Toronto's Sail-In Cinema at the city's picturesque waterfront offer an opportunity for individuals to catch a flick without passing up a chance to bask in the summer weather. Additionally, app-enabled interactive movie previews make waiting through ads for the show to start a bit more enjoyable for everyone.
