Cineplex Inc. says its box office revenue amounted to $23 million in September, a total representing 52 per cent of the figure for September 2019 before the pandemic pummeled the movie theatre industry.

The movie theatre company says lower business volumes were expected in August and September due to pandemic-related production delays.

Cineplex says it focused on increasing its offerings of international movies during the period in light of the limited Hollywood options.
