What would be a good mix of sizes for the auditoriums in a small town 4plex? I was thinking along the lines of 75/100/150/200. Or would I be better with somethig like 100/100/200/200/

About 4000 but the drawing area is quite large. Nearest theater is 40+ miles. Massive tourist population with no nighttime activities most of the year.

Sounds exactly like my market. My auditoriums are 200/95/95/95. 10 years ago, I might have considered 1 intermediate house size of 140. The second week drop-offs in my area are very substantial and we decided to go this direction. If we find a need for the 140 size, we have room for 2 additional auditoriums. Building is just shy of 11,000SF with 18" stadium and 44" row spacing. We open in mid-Sept.

One thing to think about: if your smallest house is significantly smaller than the others, you'll have patrons complaining "oh, the movie is on the tiny screen." Keep your smaller houses near to the same size, like reelman.

Are you building new or converting? If you are converting, you might not have much choice depending on the current configuration.
