When you’re a movie watchers, you’re looking at the box office revenue.
The number of theaters that are opening and showing movies at any given time tells you a lot about the moviegoing audience.
But what about the revenue you’re actually generating?
To find out, CNBC decided to look at a typical movie watker’s revenue for each film, and how much of it is coming directly from television.
Here’s what we found.
A full-time movie watking earns between $10,000 and $20,000 a year.
Movie watchers in the $10K to $30K income bracket typically get their income from streaming.
A movie watchery in the mid-$20K income range is usually getting their income in ticket sales, advertising, and promotional merchandise.
A more typical movie-going income for movie watkers in the upper-middle income bracket, $40,000 to $80,000, is largely generated by rentals, cable subscriptions, and subscriptions to movie sites.
This income includes revenue from ticket sales for movie theatres, cable and satellite subscriptions, film festivals, and other commercial ventures.
