What time of year do people tend to go to movies more?

Peak movie going time is typically November through December. In

the US this has its two biggest peaks around the weekend after

Thanksgiving, beginning with the Black Friday shopping tradition

and than Christmas through the last week of December before New

Years Eve.

This two month span has the most 'days off' for both school

children and adult workers due to the variety of holidays combined

with the fact that more people are out shopping and (at least in

North America) it is also cold outside which for some people may

limit their entertainment options to indoor activities.

This is immediately followed by the slowest four months of the

year for movie going: January through April.

The other six months (May through October) are all fairly

average falling somewhere between those two extremes.
