Moviegoing Declining; Movie 'Viewing' Not

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Jan. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Interpret, a leading entertainment, media and technology market research firm, today released its Interpretations report, "Beyond the Theater: Moviegoers and Other Media," which found that though the number of moviegoers decreased over the past year, time spent with other media to view movies has increased.

Interpret's New Media Measure™ data shows the number of moviegoers (defined as those who watch 3 or more movies in a theater in the past 6 months) has decreased 11% over the past year, and the average number of movies watched in the theater among this group has also decreased. At the same time, more moviegoers (36%) are streaming full-length movies online, increasing 16% in the past year. Perhaps most disconcerting is that these alternative options have resulted in less interest in being the first to see movies in the theater.

"While the number of active moviegoers is down, there is a silver lining in that movie lovers are turning to other media to view movies," said Dan Casey, VP of the Movie Group at Interpret. "Moviegoers' use of other media – like video games and social networking – has also increased, offering studios and marketers new ways to interact with movie-loving audiences."
