Default Theater sales

Just curious about the attendence rates where you live.

I live in the Dayton Ohio area...tonight (Wednesday 6/3) was my third viewing at the 6:40 showing. The theater was well over half full! I didn't expect that many people to be there, on a Wednesday night, a month (5 days short) after the movie opened!

I can't really say this far in. I've already seen the movie five times, and the fifth time, the theater was about 3/4 full....but that was about three weeks into the movie's run.

I'll see it a sixth if one of my friends wants to go see the movie.

I'm just glad it's done so well.

Exactly! And a Wednesday a month into the run being well over half full? Most movies have much less attendence at this point!

And BTW marotk, I LOVE your current words of wisdom of the day..."Canonista Empire".... LMAO

Danke, Kallen.

In truth, I need to change them. It's rather outdated now, and ....actually...HA! I just found my next words of wisdom...although they are borrowed from someone else.

I saw the movie (4th time) on Monday, Jun 1st and the theater was 1/2+ full. I was surprised and happy to see that. I will see it again in a couple of weeks when my son comes home from being out of the country.

Oh and both of my non-Trek friends loved the movie!

No way!
I thought drive-ins were phased out a couple of decades ago!?!
I really kind of miss that feeling of freedom.
Having to periodically run the engine on the car to recharge the battery... not so fun. But the ability to bring the BBQ and do some tailgating is a fine trade-off.

We have one or two left her in the Dayton area...but why would you need to run your car??? I assume that the drive-in you're thinking of uses AM radio rather than haveing the window hanging speakers, but even then, if running your radio for 2 hours kills your battery....you need a new battery anyways...

Good assumption.
Last drive-in I was at (early '80's and the very last in the area to fold up shop) the switch to radio only was already done. Window speakers had gone bye-bye about 5 years previous to that.
