"Twenty-nine percent of movie theater operating revenue came from the sale of food and beverages."

"Foreign film admissions revenue increased 18.7 percent to $216 million in 2006"

" Total movie theater operating revenue in the United States was $11.1 billion in 2006, with ticket sales making up 66 percent of the total. Domestic feature films provided the lion?s share of box office receipts, amounting to $7.1 billion of the $7.3 billion sold, while admission to foreign films made up 3 percent of that revenue at $216 million. Foreign films include such titles as ?Pan?s Labyrinth? and ?The Lives of Others,? the latter winning an Oscar as best foreign language film."
