Not really sure what to use as a comp for this film, since as I understand it horror isn't that pre-sale heavy.  Maybe.  For now, gonna throw in a few recent ones along with JW2 and DP2 and hope for the best.

Bit of a heads up here.  One of the theaters I've been tracking since the very beginning only had reserved seating on its PLF screen, and all other showings were non-reserved.  I've had a sense though that the last few holdouts in the region might convert over to reserved seating soon, and sure enough, this theater transfered over.

 

It happened either today or in the last couple of days.  I haven't religiously checked, but I have been keeping an eye out on it, just in case.  Not a single ticket has been sold in those now-reserved seating showings, so I suspect it happened either today or the last couple of days.

 

Either way, this now means that ALL of my comps will have to be adjusted, going backwards, with the JW2/DP2 being a slightly different adjustment.  Which is a bit of an irritation since I did so many comps this year, but whatcha gonna do?


Anywho, as I said, a heads up.  Gonna have to work on my chart a teeny bit but shouldn't be too much difficulty.

As an aside, not counting the local drive-in, this now leaves only four theaters in the entire region that I track that are currently non-reserved seating (out of a total of twenty one, again not including the local drive in). 

 

One of them I suspect will either never switch over or be the last to switch over as it's a super cheap theater that while still first run makes it hey on being super cheap.   Another one will be any week/month now, as I suspect it's one of the busier in the region (I see the occasional sellout there which is kinda rare for non-reserved seating).

 

The two I'm unsure about are a pair of smaller theaters in Davis.  They're owned by Regal so they could switch over.  Or they could be so small that they'll be a long holdout as well.

I feel like your new avatar is repeatedly headbutting me 😛     

 

I was surprised to see that one of my go to theaters had converted fully to reserved seating just in the past few weeks.

Salt Lake City report for It 2, 12 days out, Sugarhouse Cinemark, 6 showtimes, all 2D.

 

104/463 22.5%

 

140% of Hobbs and Shaw, 94% of John Wick, and 103% of Godzilla just a few hours before previews.

 

It 2 has exploded in SLC the past 48 hours. If this pace continues, it should easily surpass every other movie I've tracked this summer aside from TLK. (I didn't track Spidey because of the mid-week release date.)

Surprisingly inToronto area  still a fair amount of non reserved theatres. Its slowly changing but it makes looking for reserved for counts a bit tricky. As the trend seems to be headed for big budget / must see type movies and more people wanting to pick seat from phone reserved imo will continue  to gain popularity

If numbers are right 340/4995 seats...optically that number seems small. 

 

A new addition theatre going forward.

Mostly stalled sales. Summer/september reasoning as before. It being R rated by nature is obviously going to have effect.
I stll think it will do very well. Just have to see what September and forward brings.

Okay more theatres! More data yay! So i discovered eglinton area 2 different cinemas hence some confusion. The total seats sold is right as far as i know however it might be off so take with salt while i take time to do mathy stuff.

 

These counts are Toronto proper this is NOT counting missisauga richmond hill scarborough IE Greater Toronto Area...thats a whole other kettle of fish. And these are theatres with reserved. There are at least 4 that are still first come first served.

So, BOP updated its Long Range Tracking, and It 2 got a bit of a haircut:

 

Quote

Notable Updates This Week

  • It: Chapter Two‘s range continues to fluctuate as this week’s first reactions from critics indicate potential for varying degrees of word of mouth. Combined with the film’s near-three-hour runtime and updated social media models, we’re lowering forecasts for the time being, but we still expect another blockbuster run in the grand scheme of things.

8-Week Forecast

Release Date Title 3-Day (FSS) Opening Range 3-Day (FSS) Opening Forecast % Chg from Last Week Domestic Total Forecast % Chg from Last Week Estimated Location Count Distributor
                 
9/6/2019 It: Chapter Two $100,000,000 – $140,000,000 $119,000,000 -14% $290,000,000 -6% 4,200 Warner Bros. / New Line

 

Have to admit, while I don't think the sales in Sacto are bad per-se, I would have liked to see a bit more of a boost off of the initial social media buzz.  As it is, I think this might have more of a muted opening that some where hoping for a few weeks ago.

 

Still plenty of time for the pace to pick up.  And I've never tracked a horror film, so I have very little benchmarks to compare.  But just got a feeling about it.  No pun intended.

 

Be interesting to see how the movie plays in the next few days.  I saw the bump in Philly tonight, for instance, so I'll be looking to see if it replicates that bump in Sacramento or not.
