Grand Theft Auto V – Should You Buy the Ten Cent Theater in Story Mode?


In this video, we’ll be discussing one of the businesses available for purchase in Grand Theft Auto V’s Story Mode, specifically the Ten Cent Theater. We’ll delve into the numbers, discussing the location of the theater, its profitability, and whether or not it’s worth the investment.

The Ten Cent Theater Location

After completing the “Nervous Ron” mission, the Ten Cent Theater becomes available for purchase by Michael. The location is in Vinewood and is a prime spot as players can enjoy the view of the surrounding area while their business earns money in the background. It’s important to note that many players may not stumble upon this business so easily, as it is not necessary to complete the story mode and not advertised as heavily as other businesses.

Profitability of the Ten Cent Theater in GTA 5

The initial cost of buying the theater is a whopping $20 million. By default, the business earns $264,000 per week, and in-game days take roughly 48 real-world minutes to progress. So, to put that into perspective, it takes over five and a half hours in real-time to complete one in-game week. For players to make a return on their investment, they would need to play through 76 weeks of gameplay, which equates to a minimum of 420 hours of playtime.

Is It Worth It to Buy the Ten Cent Theater in GTA 5?

The answer to this question is probably not. With 426 hours of gameplay, it would take far too much time for the average player to see an actual return on the investment. Realistically, unless gaming is your profession or you have an abundance of free time, there is little chance that you will break even in the game.


So, to sum it up, buying the Ten Cent Theater in GTA 5 Story Mode will take a considerable amount of time before players see any profit. While it is a beautiful location and could add to the immersion of the game, it is a luxury purchase that is not feasible for many players. Stay tuned for more GTA 5 Walkthroughs and guides from us!
