Movie crazy nation?

“Around 13000: the number of movie screens in India, compared to 65000 and 36000 in China and the US respectively”

Picked up above stats from a magazine recently. I thought we had a bigger movie industry compared to China. And I thought we were more movie crazy than US. What explains the numbers then? Piracy? Preference to watch older Movies on TV? Bigger Cinema halls here? Or the count doesn’t include tons of video parlors in smaller towns?

May be I should go pickup some shares of PVR and Shringar Cinema today.

  1. Though we lag behind in the stats of number of cinema screens, its a irony that we do top in the number of cinemas released in a year.
