Does anyone know if there are (current) statistics about the number of independently owned film theaters vs. corporately owned?

Thanks,
Sandra

I'd check NATO's latest edition of the Encyclopedia of Exhibition, but I don't have a copy. My guess would be probably somewhere between 70 - 75% of the screens (not locations) are operated by the major chains and mid-size chains (top 10 - 15 exhibitors). Locations is a different animal since the major chains have concentrated their screens in larger complexes. Again, NATO and the MPAA keep track of all this stuff and use it for lobbying purposes.

Here is the Boxoffice Magazine "Giants of Exhibition Issue" that gives statistics on the 50 largest circuits. With about 35,000 US screens total, you can calculate how many are not owned by the "big guys":
