B.O. YEAR SUMMARY: Multiplexes have helped boost cinema attendance to an average of 22 million a year for the past two years. The most recent year box office receipts are available for is 1993, with government figures putting receipts at $161.6 million that year. Industry sources estimate there was at least a 10% increase in 1994. All top five grossing films of ’94 were Western productions. David Glass, general manager of Golden Village Entertainment, said the greater market share of Western films was due largely to poor Chinese productions. The vast improvement in cinema quality and the choices available at multiplexes were other contributing factors. English language films now enjoy a market share of around 60%.
