Survey time period

2017 and 2018

Supplementary notes

235.3 million moviegoers in 2015
246 million moviegoers in 2016
263 million moviegoers in 2017
263.2 million moviegoers in 2018 - the source notes that surveying is conducted in the U.S. only, so the results assume the demographic composition of the U.S./Canada combined population is similar to the U.S. only. Comparisons prior to 2017 are noted as not being feasible due to the change of methodology, aka the 2017 survey and beyond were online only. Data prior to 2017 is available in the Excel download.
