Hollywood’s Down Year

Hollywood didn’t have as good a year as it had hoped for in 2003. “When adjusted for inflation, admissions appear to be down as much as 4 percent this year for 2003, and domestic box office revenue is down for the first time in more than a decade. The domestic box office gross for 2003 is expected to be about $8.9 billion, compared with last year’s 2002’s record-breaking $9.3 billion.”
