I have recently started research on owning a movie theater. Does anyone know where I can find industry statistics. I am intrested in finding all the financial facts of owning a theater. Including industry averages on salaries, marketing, food sales, ticket revenues, gross dollar volume by theater size, profit and all the other factors of owning a theater. Life would be great if there was a proven business plan available! I know, wishful thinking. Thanks in advance for any help.

A good place to start would be the National Association of Theatre Owners:
http://www.natoonline.org/
http://www.natoonline.org/statistics.htm

They publish an annual "Encyclopedia of Exhibition":

Thanks for the info on NATO. I will use there web site as much as I can without being a member. I beleive you have to be an owner to qualify for a subscription. Thanks good advice.

You may also find helpful the website for the Motion Picture Association of America. They publish annual industry statistics.

Find a copy of "The Movie Business Book" by Jason E. Squire. Another helpful book is "The Business of Show Business: The Valuation of Movie Theaters", by Arthur Gimmy & Mary Gates, published by The Appraisal Institute (you have to buy it from them. Check their website).

You and I are in the same boat. Good luck!
