Admissions tumble in France

World Brief

Theatrical admissions fell 9% in the first quarter of 2003, the French Exhibitors National Federation (FNDF) said Friday.

February was the worst month, due to the absence of an audience-puller to compare with last year’s “Asterix & Obelix: Mis-sion Cleopatra” (the Alain Chabat-helmed pic notched up more than $83 million in Gaul).

So far this year, “Taxi 3” is the only pic to have scored more than $30 million at the box office. The second biggest success was “Catch Me if You Can,” grossing $20 million.

Gallic admissions saw an uptick in March thanks to the FNDF’s Printemps du Cinema three-day cheap rate promotion.
