ages from Shanghai For上海后花园女神会所 ted Chinese

hina’s first box-o上海后花园女神会所 ffice decline in eight years has prompted b

rainstorming among industry insiders at an ongoing movie festival, Xu Fan reports.

China’s January-to-May box-office revenue has declined for the first time since 2011.

This cause for concern among industry insiders has become a ma

jor topic of discussion at the ongoing 22nd Shanghai International Film Festival.

Statistics from the country’s top film regulator show that China’s 64,510 screens had grosse

d 27 billion yuan ($3.9 billion) as of May 31, down 5.1 percent year-on-year, according to China Film News.

A report from box-office tracker Maoyan released during the fes

tival says the decline may be due to a drop in the number of the

atergoers. From January to May, cinemas on the mainland registered 688

million admissions, plummeting 13.5 percent from 796 million admissions in the same period in 2018.

nt for International Peace, said the footwear industry’s complaints are justifiable, albeit a little late.
