Movie Box Office

by Calculated Risk on 3/30/2020 12:59:00 PM

When the eventual recovery starts, it will be interesting to track hotel occupancy, restaurant traffic and movie box office data.

Currently almost all theaters in the US are closed and box office is close to zero. Note: the 4-week average hasn't fallen to zero yet, but the average will be at zero in a couple of weeks.

This data shows the 4-week average of domestic box office for this year (red) and the maximum and minimum for the previous four years.

This data is through the week ending March 26, 2020.

The red line (2020) will fall to zero in a couple of weeks and remain there until theaters start to open again.   This will be useful to track when the economy starts to reopen.
