: BrainTech, LLC is looking for an independent movie theater or theater chain that is willing to share (and make public) their daily ticket sales figures in exchange for services.
BrainTech, LLC is looking for an independent movie theater or theater chain that is willing to share (and make public) their daily ticket sales figures for a single location (or city) during the first half of '06. In return, we are offering a free (public) analysis of how weather, general market trend, and holidays might have influenced ticket sales during the first half of '06. In addition, we are offering 3 (private) future trend analyses of recent sales figures, upon request, at any time during 2007, along with (private) analysis for potential trend change. Our purpose in extending this offer is to collect an additional sample data set and test our modeling algorithms in a scenario where poor weather may occasionally lead to increased ticket sales. If you are interested in this offer (valued at approximately $300; or would like to propose an alternative arrangement), please
at your earliest convenience. Thank you.
