The Chinese cinema market has been the talk of the industry for some years, and is responsible for driving a change in strategic direction amongst the larger film producers and distributors around the globe. However, the slowdown in box office growth so far this year is causing some concern and brings into question how much further the market has to grow before it becomes a mature one. Box office growth has largely been fuelled by screen growth. There were just over 37,000 screens at end June 2016 in China, a growth of 5,000 in the first half even if screen growth halved during the second quarter.
