“Sight & Sound is excited to be part of the Keystone Elite Captive. Our decision was based first on embracing the captive model which has a superior risk/reward balance, and incentivizes peer accountability and best practices. We specifically chose the Keystone captive for the large involvement from local businesses with similar values; its relatively small size which allows relationships to grow stronger; a proven, long-term trust relationship with Murray Securus; and finally, the low initial investment.”Tony Smith, Chief Financial Officer, Sight & Sound Theaters
