Foreign Films Translate Into Growing Revenue Stream, Newspapers Do Not

The U.S. Census released the 2006 Service Annual Survey: Information Sector Services, a series of economic tables that are part of a larger package. The Information Sector includes newspaper publishers, books and periodicals; the film industry; broadcast companies; telecommunications companies; and Internet service providers.

Details from the survey:

  • Foreign film admissions revenue increased 18.7 percent to $216 million in 2006, thanks in large part to Pan’s Labyrinth and The Lives of Others.
  • Revenue from admission to domestic films remains flat.
  • Broadcast television and cable television are up. So are music publishers and radio networks.
  • Newspaper publishers and greeting cards are down in revenue. Newspaper publishers showed a 1.7 percent decline, falling to $48.9 billion. Greeting card publishers are down 9.4%.
