Hotels with cinema
Having a hotel with a movie theater included may seem like a suicidal act.

But the world would not advance with this type of brains. And it would be very boring. If a hotel brains fancy a cinema in their hotel, it fits, makes it profitable and makes it a plus.
As always, the important thing is not the what, but the how. It is not enough to fill a room with chairs and place a big screen.
