Hi Ron, the user in this case is not a theater patron but a producer who 
is staging a production at that theater.  They aren't searching, they will 
be inputting data through a form about the production -- it's location, 
venue, etc.

(A friend of mine used to run (may still run) several sites on 
drive-in theatres; lists and reviews of the ones that are still 
active, maps, directions, history, trivia, stuff like that. (Heck, 
I think he even showed the snack bar menus for some of them!) If 
this project is similar, I can give you a name off-list if you 

Yep, quite similar by the sound of it.
