Chinese directors Zhang Yimou and Feng Xiaogang say lowerticket prices are needed to attract more audiences, as they attend China's annual in parliamentary meettings Beijing.
They made the proposal as the representatives of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, which is an advisory body.
"I care about entrance prices, let's make it more affordable forpeople to watch movies in theaters," Zhang says,
"The tens of millions of people who watch the films are the backbone of the industry. Without them, Chinese films are dead," Feng says.
The cost of cinema tickets varies widely in China but it'snot unusual to pay over $7 for a ticket, a chunk of change in a country wherethe average monthly income per capita is about $200.
On the other hand, the film administration underthe State Administration of Radio, Filmand Television made another proposal just a week ago to restrict the discounted price of movie tickets to no less than 70 percent of the full price, in order to boost the box offices and "protect the Chinese film industry".
So should China lower the price of its movie tickes?
