The chart illustrates the proportion of people visiting a cinema during seven days of the week in a European nation from 2003 to 2007.
It is clear that there were only small ﬂuctuations in people’s preference of which day to go to the cinema over the examined period. People in this country tended to go to the cinema on the weekend rather than on Monday to Friday.
In 2003, 40% of people went to cinemas on a Saturday, compared to 30% on Friday or Sunday each. On the other days, the proportion of movie-goers was higher on Tuesday, at 20%, while the lowest figure can be seen on Monday, at only 10%.
Over the next four years, the percentage of people going to the cinema on weekends increased slightly to 45% 35% for Saturday and Sunday respectively. Similarly, Thursday and Monday became more popular among cinema-goers, with about 2% more people choosing these days. However, fewer people went to see movies on Tuesday and Wednesday, with the figures falling to 19% and 9% respectively. Finally, the proportion of movie-goers choosing to go to the cinema on a Friday remained at 30% during the three examined years.
