Not merely money, but space. Having designed theaters, I know that there is NEVER enough space (particularly in a costly urban environment where theaters ought to be) for adequate facilities at intermission time. The women, in particular, endure long lines and miss the socializing the many (men, especially) enjoy during the intermission--sneaking a nip or two while the wife or date is standing in line. Not a very elegant theater experience.
The problem, of course, is having hundreds of people who all want to use the facilities at the same precise moment. Is there a solution? It's easy to say provide enough facilities--but try to figure out how many, and how much space, and try to squeeze that into the limited lobby space for an urban theater.
