No. of Moviegoers Dropped in 2010

2011/01/20 | 178 views | Permalink | Source

A new report shows the number of moviegoers fell last year but theaters continued to post record highs in terms of revenue.

According to a report by the Korean Film Council, the number of moviegoers dropped some eight-point-one million in 2010 from the previous year.

However, the report also showed that theater revenues increased by some 70 billion won to one-point-one trillion won, which is an all-time record.

The council attributed the figures to across-the-board hikes in ticket prices in the second half of 2009 and an in increase in the number of 3-D movies, which have higher ticket prices.
