SABA:--- Tasked with the project of creating a school business, the business students of Saba Comprehensive School Forms 3 & 4 decided on the concept of a pop-up movie theater as part of their learning in action called Sabaplex. Sabaplex will debut this Friday, May 25 at the Sunny Valley Youth Center in The Bottom as it premiers Marvel Studio’s Black Panther on big screen at a 7pm show time. Tickets are available at the Saba Comprehensive School.
The project, led by business teacher Ms. Suzette Fletcher and project coordinator Mr. Shaigan Marten, gives students a first-hand experience into the world of entrepreneurship. Responsible for realizing the school business, the students were challenged with making their idea a reality and building a feasible business concept. As part of their market research, more than 100 surveys were handed out to create the ideal business model for the pop-up movie theater. Leading up to Friday’s school business debut, students are fully in charge of marketing, ticket sales, food & beverage as well as setup and security in consultation with Ms. Fletcher and Mr. Marten.
Not only will the pop-up theater create a new weekend activity for teenagers, it’s really good news for the entire community. Compared to nearby St Maarten for example, Saba lacks a fullscale movie theater and entertainment facilities where family and friends can enjoy a night out, with this project, the opportunity exists to fill this void.
Inside Sabaplex, popcorn, nachos, brownies, croquettes, pizza and soft drinks will be on sale to complete the night out. If you don’t already have something planned for Friday night, come out and support the project and have a fun night out with family and friends.
Sabaplex can pop up anywhere and provide entertainment for all.
