Popcorn Cinema

A Computer Applications Simulation

Description

Popcorn Cinema is a popular movie theater chain based in Chicago, Illinois. The owners have recently announced the opening of the fifth Popcorn Cinema location, which will be located in Madison, Wisconsin.

In this exciting simulation, students will learn what happens “behind the curtain” while working for a movie theater franchise. From creating a news release and movie e-review, to designing a gift card and analyzing ticket sales, students will be fully engaged as they complete real-world tasks that assist in the operations of Popcorn Cinema.

  • Projects can be completed using any version of Microsoft Office or Google Applications
