I've just posted Are there “fewer independent theaters than ever”? in the main site and I'm not sure if a question about data on the number of independent theaters (US or world-wide) is on-topic here.
I noticed that there is no theaters tag, but someone added the distribution tag which has almost 150 questions.
Is this question on-topic? If there's an issue, can it be improved?
My question is not about the Martin Scorsese opinion piece in the New York Times, but I'm assuming he has some credibility in the industry so I'm premising my question on his authority.
