America never fails Hollywood and vice versa

American moviegoers are returning to the multiplex, steadily if slowly, Sharon Waxman reports in Monday's NY TIMES. Through the first 25 weeks of the year, domestic box-office revenue -- helped by a boost in ticket prices -- was up nearly 5 percent, to $4.6 billion, though it still trailed 2004. Movie attendance was up about 1.65 percent to 699 million for the first 25 weeks, after a sharp decline the year before. The totals grew last weekend as Warner Brothers' "Superman Returns" took in $84 million over a six-day period.
