2010 Was The Lowest Box Office Year Since 1996

Because of price increases and the ridiculous cost of a 3-D movie ticket, box office revenues rose above $10 billion but only 1.35 billion tickets were sold.

That’s the lowest amount of tickets sold since 1.33 were sold in 1996.

Audience numbers decreased by 5.4% in 2010 (compared to 2009). Perhaps digital media is taking over and people aren’t watching as many movies as before, or maybe it’s the economical crisis keeping people at home. Or, maybe Hollywood is making very bad movies.

Why do you think the Box-office audiences have decreased so much?
