Related Strips: #800: See It with a Bud
This will get explained indirectly or otherwise in the next strip or so, but since it’s not supposed to be a point of suspense, I’ll save you the math: 24 tickets means they made $192.
For context, looking at this past Tuesday on Box Office Mojo, the film it would have replaced would have made roughly $100–130 (12–16 tickets) the whole day — so maybe four people in the one screening they replaced.
20 extra people doesn’t sound too bad until you factor in the rental cost of the movie, which would have been around $300.
Multiplex 10 is here!
