Taiwan On Screen

SCREENS: 569 (255 theaters).

NEW CINEMAS: No new multiplexes were constructed in Taiwan during ’94, though many theaters, particularly in Taipei, were transformed from large, single screen theaters into multiscreen complexes. Taipei’s Lux Theater, at one point the island’s largest single screening room with 1,620 seats, was partitioned into three smaller screening rooms. For 1995, only one major project is on the boards: a joint venture between Taiwan’s Golden Harvest Films and Australia’s Show Village to build a $5 million, 10-screen multiplex in Taipei.

TOP LOCAL FILM OF 1994: “New Oolong Temple.” (Grossed $3.76 mil.)

TOP FOREIGN FILM OF 1994: “True Lies” (U.S.). (Grossed $4.8 mil.)

B.O. YEAR SUMMARY: Though no formal statistics are compiled for island-wide box office grosses, most in the industry agree that ’94 was a growth year for Western films in Taiwan. “We didn’t have a ‘Jurassic Park’ this year, but we did have several titles that surpassed ($3.8 million),” said Eric Shih, marketing manager for Warner Bros. Asia. The same could not be said for the local movie industry, which continued to lag.
