BEIJING puma suede heart satin gris femme , June 12 (Xinhuanet) -- Movie ticket sales have gone crazy in the city of Panjin.
Compared with two years ago, in one of the fourth-tier city's "cineplexes" there are now nearly as many tickets being sold in a month as there were in a whole year.
Annual box-office revenues in the city — in the southwest of Northeast China's Liaoning province — surged to 25.6 million yuan ($4.17 million) in 2012 from 2.65 million yuan the year earlier, a year-on-year growth of 867 percent, according to statistics from EntGroup Consulting, a Beijing-based entertainment industry consultancy.
In April alone, the city's CJ CGV cineplex, owned by a South Korean theater operator puma suede heart satin femme pas cher , sold two million yuan's worth of tickets to 50,000 customers, said Guo Jinsheng, the manager of the theater, which opened in January.
"And that performance is growing month-on-month," added Guo.
Panjin is now one of the fastest-growing third- and fourth-tier cities in terms of box-office receipts, and others cities enjoying similar growth include Langfang in Hebei province puma suede heart satin pas cher , and Yueyang in Hunan province.
Ticket sales are also gaining momentum in small cities in a country that is now the world's second-largest film market.
After the United States, China accounted for 8 percent of the global film market with annual box-office receipts of $2.7 billion last year, according to figures released in March by the Motion Picture Association of America.
By May 12, China's total box-office revenues for the year exceeded 8.1 billion yuan, up 39 percent year-on-year, according to official statistics from the film bureau under a new administration formed in March, which falls under the auspices of the State Administration of Radio puma suede heart reset bleu pas cher , Film and Television, and the State Press and Publication Administration.
Domestic movies accounted for 63 percent of that, against 34 percent during the same period last year
