Cinema industry in China – additional information

The number of cinema screens in China has increased almost 20 fold since 2007, from 3,527 screens that year to 23,592 screens in 2014 around the country. The rise of 3D film showings had also been paralleled by an increase in the number of 3D compatible cinema screens, which had increased from 1,297 screens in 2006 to 64,905 screens in 2014, worldwide. Reflecting the increase in cinema screens, the number of movie tickets sold in China had also increased from 284 million in 2010 to 830 million in 2014. The increase of disposable income among Chinese citizens has also encouraged box office sales. After the United States, China is the largest movie market in the world and has been largely influenced by Hollywood productions. Movies such as “Titanic” and “Transformers” have been considered responsible for the current movie culture in China and for attracting many new moviegoers. The film, “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” had been one of the most successful movies in China of all time and had generated 1.1 billion Yuan as of April 2014. Some of the most successful blockbusters in China tend to be family films, romances and action movies. However, Chinese authorities still have a large influence on which films are released in the country and are rated by the State Administration for Radio, Film and Television. Films produced in China, such as “So Young”, had easily been able to avoid being censored. The film had generated 719 million yuan in 2013.
