Not to get too off topic, but there is some kind of formula theater companies use to decide how many movie screens are needed in an area. I can't remember the exact number but the town I live in has over 50,000 people and 25 screens (will have 25 screens, new theater being built). So I guess its around 2000 people for each screen. And no we didn't get F9/11 either, just because it wouldn't be profitable in a small viewing area. Spiderman 2 was out and that was on like 5 screens. So I would assume a town with 35,000 would probably not find it economical to have it either. Unless it's a college town. Small college towns have it because the professors will give students extra credit to see it. I guess that's what they mean by a liberal arts education.
