Movie attendance has fallen to its lowest number in 16 years, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Early estimates show that the box office revenue in 2011 was about $10.2 billion — a 3.6 percent drop over last year —- roughly equating to 1.28 billion people that went to the movies. The turnout is the lowest number since 1995 which saw only 1.211 billion people at the movies. 2002 had the highest movie turnout with 1.57 billion.
While attendance for American films was down 4.4 percent this year, the foreign box office saw a record of $13.53 billion in ticket sales.
