Just how do you define a successful theatre?

Lets do a little math here.

500,000 people per year divided by 14 screens is 35,715 people per screen per year.

35,715 people per screen divided by 52 weeks is 687 people per week per screen.

Assuming 28 shows per screen per week (4 shows times 7 days per week) that would mean that each show averages about 24 to 25 people. (687 people divided by 28 shows).

Hardly enough to pay the guy in the booth. Why would anyone open a movie complex? The indusrtry shot itself in the foot when they started opening megaplexes within miles of each other.
