Cinema attendance falls in Morocco
In ten years, some 30,000 cinema seats have disappeared in Morocco, according to the Moroccan internet news sources, <i>La Vie eco</i>. This is blamed on piracy infringements and the lack of good service in cinemas.
Cinema attendance fell by 75% in the first few quarters of 2004 as opposed to 2003.
The building of the luxury cinema 2002 in the Megarama complex had a profound change on the market and many smaller cinema companies simply could not compete any longer with the state of the art facilities appearing across the country.
