Mixed news on UK film industry

From the UK Film Council:
The latest statistics from the UK Film Council paint a mixed picture for film in the UK in 2008. While UK box office receipts reached a record high, film production spend in the UK was down compared with the previous year.

Cinema-going continues to be one of the nation's favourite activities with box office takings for the UK and Republic of Ireland hitting £949.5 million, up 5% on 2007's £904 million, and the highest since records began in 1989.

British films also accounted for 31% of cinema takings, the second highest in a decade.
