Ticket price at North American movie theaters – additional information

Going to a movie theater has been a growing expense since 2001 when admission cost 5.66 U.S. dollars. However, to watch celebrities on silver screen in 2018, an average American needed to pay 9.11 U.S. dollars. Despite the rise in prices, the frequency of cinema visits among American adults is still high. During a survey in 2017, six percent of respondents stated that they go to the movies two or three times a month. This trend is reflected in growing revenues as well. The U.S. Census Bureau estimated that American movie theaters generated over 15 billion U.S dollars in 2015, out of which 9.9 billion was derived from admissions to feature film exhibitions.

In 2016, there were 733 movies released in the United States and Canada and almost 1.32 billion movie tickets were sold in the same period. Comedy, adventure, drama and action were in the top four genres most watched by North American audiences, based on the box office results.
