Question ID: 463507
We are marketing a company that is essentially a restaurant inside of
a theatre.  So, you can sit and watch a movie while you have a nice
dinner, inside a nice environment.  My question is, what percentage of
movie goer's dine prior to or after seeing a movie in a theatre?

An estimated 72 to 75 percent of moviegoers dine before or after a movie.

'Fort Lauderdale-based Muvico created Premiere because research showed
75 percent of moviegoers dine before or after, said Emerman.'
source: St. Petersburg Times, September 19, 2000

"Moviegoers dine out when they go to a movie
72% of the movie audience combine dining out and moviegoing."

search strategy:
"moviegoers dine"

Yea, just stay away from really crunchy things, so your patrons can
hear the movie ;-)

Wht not take a whole dinner with you...can even be a special diet
dinner. Macrobiotic, Microbiotic, Atkins, or any specific type...get
