They can be directly released in the PRC after completing and passing the censorship review. According to our latest report, the China Movie Market is expected to reach US$ 16.5 Billion by 2026.

Effect of COVID-19 on the Chinese Cinema Industry:

Revenue for Cinemas in China declined in 2020, as the COVID-19 pandemic has severely restricted film screening activity. But, the demand for film watching is surging in Chinese theatres as they were able to reopen by midyear and have seen continuous audience growth. Lunar Year for 2021 came as a blessing for the Chinese box office, as most people were encouraged to stay in the city. So watching movies in the theatres became the top choice of entertainment. Besides, the lack of other entertainment options helped pump up ticket sales during the pandemic.
