Ken sorry to say you have no clue what you are talking about. After everything is paid most theaters are working on a 5% to 10 % profit margin..One of the worst % out of any biz in the nation.

I have seen over 2,500 movies and have never been in a theater that people boo the ads. Never not even in the early days of ads in NYC. My theaters at the time were the first in NY to run the COCA COLA ads when I worked for CO. I now get complaints from patrons because I don’t run ads before the shows at the theaters I own. Times have changed…….For the most part for the better.

Theater projection is far superior to 25 years ago and sound is amazing…Maybe no curtains but the far better seats than the 70s —80 s more than make up for it. Been in the biz since 1981.
