As I said, my math is not my strong suit so I think I will have to revise some stats below from a previous post:

“So, if a movie in 355 theatres only makes $1,933 per theatre, at an average ticket price of $16.00, then that means around only 120 people attended that movie showing at a theatre for that week.  Which, divided by an average of five show times, means that perhaps 24 people attended each showing.”

What I failed to figure in was this:  If only 120 people attended that movie showing at a theatre for one week, a new set of division must be considered.  If there are five show times for seven days, that 35 all totaled.  Therefore, one must divide 120 by 35 to get an accurate breakdown of the amount of people attending each showing.  And, it equals…three (3).
