Twenty years ago, EPR Properties was a $250 million real estate company, focused on movie theaters. Then the internet came along, heralding a new era of home entertainment. Some businesses thought we’d never need to leave the house again. But EPR decided to go in completely the opposite direction. Today, they have built a $6 billion empire of cool places to go and wild things to do so we could get off our couches and have an experience - even if it scares the pants off us. It’s crazy enough to work.
