Ticket Sales Boom in Russia

The number of people going to movie theaters in the U.S. may not have changed much in years, and it even declined a bit last year, but a boom in the construction of multiplexes in Russia sent admissions in that country rising 41 percent over last year, the BBC reported. The most popular film of the year was a sci-fi thriller titled Night Watch, which set a record for a Russian Film, $30 million. The highest-grossing foreign film in Russia was The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, which took in $14 million.
