This Memorial Day weekend is shaping up to be the lowest-grossing in nine years and the slowest in at least 15 years in terms of estimated attendance. Overall business was down around 20 percent from the same period last year. The simple reason for these doldrums is the movies themselves: an indifference-inspiring brew of tepid holdovers and non-event new releases.

The bottom line in this business has always been the quality of the product you have to sell. This quote from boxoffice guru pretty much sums it up.

"If estimates hold, the Friday-to-Sunday period will slump to the worst showing for Memorial Day weekend in nine years despite theaters charging record-high prices for tickets. Audiences sent a strong message to Hollywood studios - if you keep releasing subpar films and charge us more and more for them, we'll get our entertainment elsewhere."

This weekend had been up and down for us in the past. This was not a great weekend but it ended up like a good regular weekend. Weather was really nice here and the rain hit late Monday not early as they predicted.
