    [–] 1 Why r/movies does not have a Random Weekly discussion thread? BunyipPouch 2 points ago in movies

    There can only be so many stickied posts. The actual individual movie discussion threads are more important than a random discussion thread.

    [–] [Other] What was the reason for the $793,377 per theater average for The Lion King (1994)? Do you think such high numbers can be replicated again? BunyipPouch 3 points ago in boxoffice

    El Capitan is very historic/iconic but isn't really a 'big theater'. It's only got 1 screen (big screen obviously, 1100 capacity), but still.

    One of the biggest theaters (maybe the biggest/busiest) in America is the AMC Empire 25 in Times Square. That one has 25 screens has a 6000+ capacity.

    Other than The Favourite, Nicholas Hoult hasn't been really good at picking projects.

    Alright let's do the math.

    Let's say El Capitan would probably max out at like 10 showings in a day (they're doing 5 for Avengers Endgame but that's exactly twice as long). Let's give it 12 showings just for fun, which would be non-stop for 19 hours with non cleanup/preview time (which is very unlikely). 1,100 max capacity fully sold out for every showing (which is very unlikely). That's 13,200 people over the course of a day, times 3 days for the weekend that's 39,000.

    So 39,000 people at fully-sold out capacity in one of the biggest/most popular theaters in the country, running at almost 24/7 over a full weekend. At $4.18 per ticket that's a $163,000 average. So were still short almost 150,000 people for only this theater? After all that, we're barely 25% of the way to the needed to get to that average.

    It's mind-boggling. That number can't be right.

    I'm struggling to figure out how an average so high is even possible.

    The Lion King $795K average in 1994. Pocahontas $448K average in 1995. Like, how?

    The average ticket price in 1994 was $4.18, so you're telling me they got roughly 190,000 people to go watch The Lion King in a single theater over the course of single weekend? The entire population of a small city in one theater over 3 days? Were there 8 people sharing every seat? Did they screen the movie in a large football stadium or something lol?

    I just can't wrap my head around this record. Seems impossible.

    [–] Michael Chaves’ “The Conjuring 3” — Official Logo BunyipPouch 1 points ago in movies

    I guess. It's rarely (never?) used in that context though lol.

    [–] Michael Chaves’ “The Conjuring 3” — Official Logo BunyipPouch 22 points ago in movies

    He discovered a hidden gem on Netflix, The VVITCH.

    You probably wouldn't have heard about it, it's from a small start-up underground indie studio A24.
