European cinema chains see digital growth and 3D boom

The number of digital cinemas in Europe stood at 4,693 at the end of 2009, up 206.9% year-on-year, according to the European Audiovisual Observatory.

The Observatory reported that cinema box office revenues for the EU grew by 12% year-on-year to €6.27bn largely thanks to premium prices for 3D screenings.
