Have You Gone to the Movies More Than Usual This Summer?


Despite the recession, box-office numbers are approaching record highs this Summer. Through last Sunday, box office "revenues were $3.99 billion, up 5 percent over the same stretch in 2008, which eventually notched up $4.14 billion. That means that ticket sales are nearing the $4.16 billion collected in the record-breaking summer of 2007. Studios and theater owners expect revs to break that record by Sunday, a week before Labor Day weekend, which is the official end of the season." Then again, Labor Day is later than usual this year, so there are more days available for raking in the cash.

Still, those are some good numbers! Do you think you've gone to the theater more often than usual this Summer? Or, are you not one of the contributors to this Summer's box office success?
