See, I think there should be stats showing number of tickets sold, none of this estimate based on dividing the other numbers. Some theaters are more expensive than others so there is no real way to know for sure based on such numbers. Actually counting the number of sold tickets should be possible. I don't care if a fan goes multiple times, that can happen for BOTH Trek and X-men and if the person is paying it should make NO difference.
