Australia is the ninth biggest cinema market internationally, new numbers published by the The Motion Picture Association of America suggest.

Australian box office was responsible for  $1.2bn of the $34.7 billion made by the industry last year.

Australia was just behind Germany ($1.3bn), South Korea ($1.3bn) and Russia ($1.2bn) and ahead of Brazil ($0.8bn). Australia has one of the world’s highest admissions per capita.

The global figures show a 6 per cent growth from last year. Blockbusters like The Avengers and Skyfall helped boost sales.
