Our double-ups and triple-ups always seem to happen in our smallest auditoriums. The reason that you double-up or triple-up a film is because its business doesn't warrant an entire auditorium to itself. So your biggest film with the most attendance will be in your largest auditorium.
So if you plan ahead, buy the 5-deck platters for your smallest auditoriums. However, it doesn't take much to clamp a film and throw it on a shelf. So you can save money by not buying that 5-deck platter.
In a normal multi-screen theatre you will have very little opportunity to triple-up screens. We only did it when we had a morning movie program. Now that we have ended that program we have 7 films on our 5 screens so auditorium 4 & 5 are doubled up and they are the smallest. This is a very typical program for us.
