Record cinema attendance in France in February
With 25 million tickets sold, 42% more than in February 2000, movie attendance in France has hit its highest point in 20 years. (03/01/01)
According to initial estimates from France's Centre National de la Cinématographie, movie admissions in February 2001 peaked at over 25 million. This is the highest figure in two decades, well over the 21.1 admissions of April 2000, which was marked by the release of "Taxi 2" and "Scream 3" (the third best score in 20 years). The previous highpoint over the 20 years dates back to December 1982, when 21.8 million tickets were sold. Total attendance figures for the first two months of 2001 broke the 40 million spectators barrier, against 32 million in January-February 2000, representing an increase of 32% for this 2-month period.
