According to a study by stats firm Nielsen Entertainment/NRG, movie ticket receipts in North America fell 6% to $9B. On a personal level, I can only recall going to perhaps a dozen movies last year in part because the quality of movies has gone down and there are just too many other things competing for my time and money. Perhaps it’s more frugality on the part of moviegoers? Maybe the MPAA’s fears of people downloading movies instead of seeing them in the theaters wasn’t that far off. Or have movies just gotten too expensive to take a family to? Have your movie outings decreased in the last year and is there any one thing you can “blame” it on?
