Re midnight show DOS sales - cheap seats vs. $$$

Re midnight show DOS sales - cheap seats vs. $$$ Can't Post

OK, so I live in a major U.S. urban area e.g. plenty of theaters to choose from. Out of curiosity checked
my theater of choice for the double feature, which happens to be a reserved seating theater. Less
than half of that theater has sold, which happens to be a 3-D version.

But it looks like the regular showing for the midnight DOS is selling more than the 3-D version
of the midnight DOS.

Point being, I guess, that the folks with the stamina and drive to do a midnight show seem to be
heading for the less pricey seats - keeping in mind that this is not a huge multiplex, and doesn't
seem to offer HFR (which I didn't want for the first viewing anyway). It's not the kind of theater that
is geared to mega-crowds, and is more expensive. Also, since we have lots of theaters, we have
lots of midnight showings - and it seems the industry, rightly or wrongly, is paying attention to the
numbers for midnight viewings.

So, will once again, will folks be heading for the less expensive seats for DOS, unimpressed
with 3-D, IMAX, and HFR (and besides, it costs more?) And does it matter if midnight shows sell
out or not, in that Friday (better for people w. jobs) is the actual release day?
