Jose de Leon
Who doesn’t love going to the movies the average american goes at least once a month. Movie theaters promote growth in the economy. With huge movies such as Star Wars the Last Jedi that made $220 million domestic landing the second largest opening only beatted by Star Wars the Force Awakens that made $247million. With the flow of money going in and the jobs that it produces help the Economy grow.
In california 142,000 jobs are created, which is more than all the other states combined. With this it helps to know that even with something that provides so much entertainment it also fight something that is a huge problem in the US. In addition movies are in good demand. Just as fans could wait for the new Star Wars movie or for Marvel to release The Black Panther movie. Fans are what helping the economy grow by going to go watch the movie that sometime lead to them buying goods with the logo of the movie of something to do with it. Movies don’t just make money by the audience going to go watch them they are part of a bigger part were the incorrage for them to buy product of the movie.
From my last visit to the movie I spent about $90 alone on buying tickets for my family and another $20 on food this is another thing that some of us do. We are so willing to go and watch a movie that we don’t really care about how much it cost at the time and while we are there we are more will to buy the over priced food. With tickets normally costing $12, and popcorn about $6 and a soda goes for around $5 that is a total of $23 per person.
The movies are a fun place to go and relax to for after a long day who doesn’t just want to sit back relax and enjoy, while helping the economy grow.
