General – Recent disturbances of a political nature culminating in an economic boycott have greatly decreased the attendance of motion picture theaters. Some reports place this as high as forty per cent. It is impossible to tell how long this situation will last, but it is bound to cut down revenues from this market.
The Associated Press reported during the year that bull fighting has slumped into second place. Mexicans now spend four times more money on films than on matadors. Government figures show that bull rings in and near Mexico City took in 1,043,434 pesos during 1925, while picture theaters for the same time and territory had receipts of 4,683,106 pesos. Nearly 90 per cent of the pictures shown in Mexican theaters come from the United States, six per cent from Germany and four per cent from France, Spain and Italy. There are none from England and only now and then one made in Mexico by some special company.
