Ecpac Under CCT

Our study of how well the theater is performing under CCT:

The following study was performed for the 2006 period.

City provided the information for the operation of the ECPAC theater for 2006. This info was combined with the info on the ECPACLive.com website. No performances shown for Jan, 2006. There were approximately 35 entities with which contracts would have been executed.

Nominal rate for one-day rental: $2500. Cost to run: approximately 4 person-days. Guess $20 per hour. 20*4*8 = $640. Call it $1250, or half of the fee for the room. That would net 50% of the rental fee for the city to account for running the building. Net result is about $150,000 in revenue.

Headliners

Headliners are defined as Non-CCT/Non-rentals/Non-Locals. All other usage of the theater should be self-funding, as rentals pay for themselves.

How much does CCT/ABM cost the City of El Cajon?

Performance Parameter Value
Total days rented 32
Average rental rate $3134
Total Days used by CCT w/o paying rent: 61
Total rent gifted to CCT: $191,174
Total Days used for "other" performances, not CCT and not rented: 60
Total rent not collected for "other" performances: $188,040
Total Uncollected Rents: $379,214
Total Rents Collected and Kept by CCT: $100,295
Renovation Fees Paid: ($47,755)
Lost Revenue to the City: $431,754
Subsidy paid by City: $340,000
Total Loss: $771,754
Total Loss per attendee: $21.71

The above figures assume that the same events would occur but management would be handled by the Recreation Department, which is already skilled at handling facility rental agreements. Utilities are already paid separately, and are not included here.

If boosting the economy downtown is the goal, it would probably be more effective to give 35,000 coupons for $20 each to downtown restaurants and businesses.
