I sent a message on rec.arts.movies, but got only a few answers.
 
I am making a study on the international distribution of film.
 
A question important: how much do you have to pay to see a film in an
ordinary commercial theatre? I woold like to compare that for as many
places as possible in the world, il all continents, in all the major
cities (and also the little).
 
I need an element of comparison. I suggest the time that a non
specialised worker has to work to pay his ticket. As an example, here in
Montreal, a janitor, a factory worker, a store clerk, a gas server...
earns about 8 can$ (about 5 am $) for an hour of work, and he must pay 8
can$ for his movie ticket. A correspondant of New-Zealand suggest that i
take the price of a Big Mac as an indicator! (in his country, the movie
ticket is worth 9 Big Macs; quite expensive!)
 
All answers will be appreciated.
 
In a few weeks, if a have got many answers, i will make a summary for
this group
