Tips for naming a Cinema Business

The global box office was worth an estimated $42 billion in 2019. Mobile and home entertainment have overtaken the box office in terms of revenue generated, with about $58 billion in 2019. The rise of online movie theatres such as Netflix is not a cause for alarm for new cinema businesses.

There is still quite a large number of people visiting cinemas to watch the latest film release. Movie theatres are social hotspots where people go to have fun with their loved ones. However, while Netflix may not necessarily be a bad thing for new cinemas, existing cinema business competitors are challenging.

Breaking into the cinema industry requires a well-thought approach, which includes selecting the perfect name. Names play a part in the success or failure of any business. Here is how to find the perfect cinema name.

Brainstorm Ideas – While searching for the perfect name for your cinema, you will get tons of possibilities and ideas in the process. Get out a sheet of paper and write down every good name. Then cut down the names into a manageable few and seek others’ opinions about it.

Go for a Simple Name – A simple name appeals more to movie theatre audiences than a complex one. Some good examples are ‘Universal’ and ‘DreamWorks.’

Target Memorable Name – Memorable names are a quick hack to stand out from the crowd for new cinemas. You can employ puns, rhythmic pronunciations, fun twists, and other strategies. Although you have the creative license to do what you want, could you keep it simple and relatable? A good example is ‘Screenz.’

Cinema Business name analysis

If you’re still stuck on creating some name ideas, here’s a breakdown of some of the top brands and businesses in the industry. Here I’ll explain why the name works for that company, and how the name appeals to customers. What’s more, a few more team members from BizNameWiz have added their name ideas below aswell!


The name ‘Universal’ represents the diversity of its movies that everyone can enjoy. Universal is one of the most successful cinemas in the world. It uses a simple name that is easy to relate to and offers some marketing value. Many people undervalue the power of a name for business growth. Universal passes a clear message to its audience that it is for everyone.


It uses two concepts, ‘Dream’ and ‘World.’ ‘Dream’ represents the imaginary feature of a movie while ‘world’ represents its audience. DreamWorld is a global cinema giant with a memorable name. It is simple and the product of brainstorming.


It is a deliberate misspelling of the word ‘screen,’ which refers to the technology on which movies are viewed in the cinema.  The name is a banger; it fits the billing of a perfect cinema name. It is simple, relatable, and easy to remember. People come to the cinemas to have fun; the fun name is a great fit.


The name means relating to cinemas. Cinematics has a nice ring to it. It has a simple and truly memorable name.


Dreamsville roughly means Dream City, a place where movie lovers can come and enjoy non-stop cinema movies. The name is simple and easy to remember.
