Dose the studio get a percentage of the box office sales
I believe with new releases this is how it's done. Theatres, by the way, get a very low percentage. Which is why, if your local theatre is struggling, you should purchase some concessions more often. That's really where they make the most money.

Studios also pay theaters to show trailers. But they pay for them after the fact, based on the number of people who saw them. Studios send a couple of new trailers every week and they send new commercials. Theaters call in the numbers every night to the film companies, and they give you 'x-amount' per person.
And then you have the concessions. Popcorn yields more than 90 cents of profit on every dollar of popcorn sold.

Which is why they prefer films for the 15 to 25 age group, older people tend not to buy so much popcorn.
A cinema manager once told me that popcorn is most profitable product on the planet, you buy the seeds for pence and sell the end product for pounds...
