Yeah, I voted for 10-20, but certainly would consider more, depending on the title.
It all works out to average cost/person. At home, I could have 10 people over and split the cost of a UFC PPV event (somewhere around $50) but the average cost works out to a reasonable ~$5/person. Movies are the same.
I'm just saying if I could have watched (for example) Avatar at home for $30 when it was in theaters, and had 5 people over, I would have (average cost would be $6/person....tons cheaper than the theater). Would I pay $30 to watch it by myself? Nope. But I wouldn't pay $20 either. But throw in a second or third person to split the cost with (or realize that taking my wife to the theater would cost just as much, if not more), then it becomes much more cost-effective to watch it at home. Not to mention less annoying than the theater is.
