Meet the Bensons…
Cinergy majority owners are successful entrepreneurs, Jeff & Jamie Benson, both CPA’s with a Big Four accounting background with Deloitte. Jeff Benson, CEO, has long been a visionary and leader in the theatrical exhibition industry and is a pioneer of the cinema entertainment center (“CEC”) concept.
The Bensons used their vast operational knowledge of traditional cinemas and movie grills when creating the Cinergy concept and have spent recent years honing their knowledge of the amusement business.
Numerous other CEC’s are popping up around Texas and the nation and Cinergy is one of the early leaders in this segment having developed the right management team, growth strategy, and management controls over the various aspects of the business. The Bensons stand on their track record of success having now developed nineteen theatre complexes all of which are still in operation to this day, none having ever closed.
The Bensons started in the exhibition industry by constructing two traditional cinemas, the first of which opened in 1999. They also founded the Movie Tavern chain of dine-in theatres which opened in Ft. Worth in 2001.
In 2005, the Bensons recapitalized the company by entering into a joint venture that allowed Movie Tavern to become the largest and fastest growing operator of dine-in theatres in the United States. The Bensons sold their interest in Movie Tavern in 2008. At the time of the sale, Movie Tavern operated 98 screens in 12 complexes in 5 states. Cinergy started just one year later in 2009 and is poised to grow to new heights in the years to come.
