Canadian Movie Box Office Slide Worse Than US

Canadian movie box office grosses are down even more than those in the US. “Figures compiled for the Toronto Star by the Nielsen EDI box-office tracking firm show that since the slide began in February for weekend movie attendance in North America, the drop has been worse in Canada for 14 of the 18 weekends. The average weekend drop during the slump is 12.9 per cent for North America and 17.36 per cent in Canada.”
