Comment on "Minimum price for discount movie tickets considered", (China Daily, Feb 28)
Generally one ticket costs one percent of a resident's monthly salary worldwide. Chinese film tickets are rather expensive considering Chinese people's average income. Film is a mass entertainment media, thus it must consider the purchasing power of common people. If the policy makes the public unwilling to go to cinema because of expensive ticket price, it will be harmful to China's film industry in the long term.
